Review of WEIT and Darwin books in The Scotsman

February 2, 2009 • 10:09 am

An anniversary review of several of the new Darwin-year books, including mine, appears today in The Scotsman. Of special note are my friend Steve Jones’s new book, Darwin’s Island: The Galapagos in the Garden of England, and Adrian Desmond and James Moore’s Darwin’s Sacred Cause: How a Hatred of Slavery Shaped Darwin’s Views on Human Evolution. Jones, in particular, is a witty and incisive writer of popular science who is not as well known in the US as he deserves to be. Both of these books should make absorbing reading.
