More Description

In "Darwin's Ghost," Steve Jones has taken on the exciting challenge of rewriting the book of the millennium: Charles Darwin's "The Origin of Species." Before "The Origin," biology was a set of unconnected facts, but Darwin made it into a science, linked by the theory of evolution (the grammar of the living world). Darwin used the biology of the nineteenth century to prove his theory. Now, using the astonishing advances of the twentieth century, Steve Jones reargues the case. His "new version" of "The Origin" is a bold and fascinating tour of evolution's wonders, revealing ties between cancer and the genetics of fish, between brewing beer and inheriting disease, between the sex lives of crocodiles and the politics of Brazil.
