What about Darwin?

by Thomas F. Glick
Baltimore (MD): The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010. 520 pages.

“With over four hundred passages from authors ranging from Henry Adams ... to Emile Zola,” reviewer Glenn Branch writes, “What about Darwin? succeeds in giving a tantalizing taste of the various ways in which Darwin was understood and misunderstood, from 1859 to about the mid-1940s.” Describing it as “a delightful book to browse through,” Branch adds, “perhaps the only activity more delightful would be to argue about who should have been included, and what, and why.”
