Notes:

by pdj06 (WorldCat user on 2008-01-14)

"Ronald W. Clark has written a dual biography -- of a man, Charles Darwin, and of his idea, which remains as controversial now as it was 130 years ago. In outlining the changes that idea has gone through, the book reads like a detective story lasting more than a century. And it is a mystery that in many ways is just being unveiled." DUST JACKET
