Summary

With his publication of On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin forever changed our concept of the world's creation and its evolution. Now, celebrated historian Paul Johnson turns his keen biographer's eye on this legendary figure. Darwin came from a line of gifted and wealthy intellectuals, but it was a professor's recommendation that put him aboard the HMS Beagle as it made its now historic voyage. Darwin's spectacular powers of observation and the birth of his revolutionary theory are discussed here in probing detail, though Johnson also laments that Darwin later applied his theory of natural selection to the human realm and provided a platform for the burgeoning eugenics movement. Rich and insightful, Darwin is a bracing exploration of the man's wondrous feats and his weaknesses. Book jacket.
