Product description

From the Publisher

Charles Darwin was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist. He is best known for his work in evolutionary science and for his immense contribution to knowledge of life on Earth. His revolutionary On the Origin of Species introduced the concept of "natural selection" as the basic mechanism of evolution, and is viewed as one of the most influential works of scientific literature ever written.

John van Wyhe is a historian of science at the National University of Singapore, specialising in Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. He is the founder and Director of Darwin Online (http://darwin-online.org.uk/). Dr van Wyhe has published eleven books and lectures and broadcasts around the world.

Tom Butler-Bowdon is series editor for the Capstone Classics series. He has written Introductions for Capstone editions of Plato's The Republic, Machiavelli's The Prince, Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations, Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, and Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. Tom is the author of the 50 Classics series and is a graduate of the London School of Economics and the University of Sydney. www.Butler-Bowdon.com

From the Inside Flap

The book that forever transformed how we view the diversity of life

We have all heard of the theory of evolution. But how did it come about and what exactly does it mean?

In December 1831, Charles Darwin embarked on an expedition to collect evidence from the Galapagos Islands and other locations, during which he speculated that species evolve over generations through a process he called natural selection. In 1859, Darwin published On the Origin of Species, a work of scientific literature viewed as the foundation of evolutionary biology.

Featuring an Introduction from Darwin scholar Dr John van Wyhe, this deluxe Classics edition shines new light on one of science's most significant contributions to our understanding of the diversity of life.

On the Origin of Species: The Science Classic is a must-have volume for anyone interested in science, the natural world and the grandeur of life.

Absolutely no thought has gone into page layout and zero consideration for the reader, words might as well disappear into binding margins... Will remember to avoid this publisher in the future
