This volume for general readers and students describes the development of evolutionary thought and debates in the field since the 1830s, before Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, to contemporary theories, including opposing views such as creation science and intelligent design theory. Other chapters discuss genetics and genetic determinism, Darwin in America, and the field of evolutionary development. This edition contains two new chapters on the rise of creationism, intelligent design, and Darwinian religion in America, and philosophy and evolution; a new primary documents section that has many source readings to support chapters; and a new section of biographies of scientists. Also new are chapter introductions and overviews.
