Charles Darwin published 'On the Origin of Species' a little over 150 years ago. But many don't realise that it took him over 20 years to develop his theory, that others had been advocating a similar theory before him, and many others have been developing it since. Here, R. Paul Thompson tells the story of evolutionary theory, of the empirical and theoretical discoveries and the endless heated debates that have led to our understanding of it today. As he shows, the tortuous path from Darwin's brilliant formulation to today's robust and vibrant model is filled with intrigue.
