Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) was one of the most famous scientists of his time, both for his independent realization of the theory of natural selection and his pioneer work in biogeography and other areas of natural history. He was also a formidable social critic and theorist, leading the land nationalization movement in England and supporting the cause of women's suffrage. For many years Wallace's contributions to evolutionary biology were eclipsed by those of Charles Darwin. Now, Wallace is rapidly re-emerging from the shadows as a highly important figure in his own right and one whose ideas are relevant to present-day debates. Many of the subjects on which he and Darwin differed are still under discussion as active areas of research. This three-volume set comprises the first ever collection of Wallace's writings on evolution. Volume One gathers more than 60 of his articles, essays and reviews from numerous Victorian periodicals, reset in new typography. Volumes Two and Three contain facsimile reprints of his two books, "Darwinism" (1889) and "Natural Selection and Tropical Nature" (1891).
