He explains the theory of evolution in detail, reviews the main trends of evolutionary science since Darwin, and assesses how the field is changing today - from ground-breaking new research to the emergence of scientific disciplines like complexity theory and evolutionary psychology." "An account of contemporary evolutionary biology, The Evolutionists is a fascinating look at how controversy and debate shape the scientific process."--Jacket."@en ;
