Evolutionary Theory: Five Questions

edited by Gry Oftedal, Jan Kyrre Berg O Friis, Peter Rossel, and Michael Slott Norup
Copenhagen, Denmark: Automatic Press, 2009. 245 pages.

“The book asks the same five questions of well-known people doing work in (or directly connected to) evolutionary theory, and the reader is then privy to the part-informative, part-explanatory, part-argumentative, and even part-sentimental reflections of these people,” reviewer Robert Arp explains. He recommends the book both to neophytes, who will find “many of the standard topics and current controversies in evolutionary theory” presented, and to experts, concluding, “Evolutionary Theory: Five Questions offers a decent opportunity to identify and explore evolutionary theory, as well as make you feel like you’re hanging around with some pretty special people.”
