Charles Darwin can easily be considered one of the most influential scholars of his time. His thoughts, ideas, research and writings have had a far reaching impact and influence on modern thought in the arts, on society, and in science. With contributions from leading scholars, this collection of essays explores how Darwin's work grew out of the ideas of his time, and how its influence spread to contemporary thinking about creationism, the limits of human evolution and the diversification of living species and their conservation. A full account of the legacy of Darwin in contemporary scholarship and thought. With contributions from Janet Browne, Jim Secord, Rebecca Stott, Paul Seabright, Steve Jones, Sean Carroll, Craig Moritz and John Dupre. This book derives from a highly successful series of public lectures, revised and illustrated for publication under the editorship of Professor William Brown and Professor Andrew Fabian of the University of Cambridge.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There is not a weak essay in the set, and the collection paints a surprisingly coherent picture of the breadth and diversity of Darwinian thought. The essays are appropriate for all readers; with an extremely reasonable list price, there is no reason that any library should be without it. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries." R. Gilmour, Ithaca College, Choice Magazine
"Darwin is accessible; contributions retain the vitality of the public address. As well as a comment on the history of Darwin and his work, Darwin is a notable record of how the author of Origin was commemorated at 200. Piers J. Hale, The Quarterly Review of Biology
