Darwin: Discovering the Tree of Life

Niles Eldredge

Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company

Format: Hardcover

Charles Darwin's ideas resonate deeply in Western culture today, and his theory still lies at the heart of modern scientific evolutionary research. As other nineteenth-century figures fade, Darwin's theory of evolution still provokes controversy, spilling over into curriculum battles at state and local school boards in the United States and around the world. In exploring the everyday artifacts of Darwin's life, his notebooks, and early manuscripts, Niles Eldredge “a candid, no-punches-pulled interpreter of the core ideas of evolutionary biology” (Science News) provides a rare glimpse into the mind of this highly intuitive, creative scientist. The celebration of Charles Darwin's 200th birthday in 2009 begins in November 2005 with the opening of a major exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, curated by Eldredge, that will travel across the nation. More than a companion book to the exhibit, Darwin is a rich and inspiring reconstruction of Darwin's life through his writings and discoveries.
