    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 12.00

    Viruses are the smallest living things known to science, yet they hold the entire planet in their sway. We are most familiar with the viruses that give us colds or the flu, but viruses also cause a vast range of other diseases, including one disorder that makes people sprout branch-like growths as if they were trees. Viruses have been a part of... more...

  • The Fair Societyby Peter Corning

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 17.00

    We?ve been told, again and again, that life is unfair. But what if we?re wrong simply to resign ourselves to this situation? What if we have the power?and more, the duty?to change society for the better? We do. And our very nature inclines us to do so. That?s the provocative argument Peter Corning makes in The Fair Society . Drawing on the evidence... more...

  • The Robot's Rebellionby Keith E. Stanovich

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 18.00

    The idea that we might be robots is no longer the stuff of science fiction; decades of research in evolutionary biology and cognitive science have led many esteemed scientists to the conclusion that, according to the precepts of universal Darwinism, humans are merely the hosts for two replicators (genes and memes) that have no interest in us except... more...

  • Charles Darwinby Grant Allen

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    After a career in the academy, Canadian-born Grant Allen struck out on his own to make his name as a writer. His early focus was on scientific topics, though he later expanded into fiction, as well. Allen was an early proponent of Darwin's theory of evolution and helped to popularize the idea through his writing. His biography Charles Darwin is... more...

  • The Next Speciesby Michael Tennesen

    Simon & Schuster 2015; US$ 26.00

    While examining the history of our planet and actively exploring our present environment, science journalist Michael Tennesen describes what life on earth could look like after the next mass extinction. A growing number of scientists agree we are headed toward a mass extinction, perhaps in as little as 300 years. Already there have been five mass... more...

  • Originsby Joseph Seckbach

    Springer 2005; US$ 499.00

    In this volume 40 scientists review their studies in the fields of life from the beginning to the 'fact of life'.

  • Darwinby Jonathan Howard

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 9.99

    There is still scepticism about the value of Darwin's contribution to knowledge. In this analysis of Darwin's major insights and arguments, Jonathan Howard reasserts the importance of Darwin's work for the development of modern biology. more...

  • Knowledge Sharedby Edward T. Jackson; Yusuf Kassam

    International Development Research Centre 1998; US$ 30.00

    This book presents leading-edge analysis on the theory and practice of participatory evaluation around the world. With its instructive case studies from Bangladesh, El Salvador, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, and St Vincent, the book is a guide to a community-based approach to evaluation that is at once a learning process, a means of... more...

  • The Biological Roots of Human Natureby Timothy H. Goldsmith

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 29.95

    This treatise explores the relevance of biological evolution to the study of behaviour. It argues that the study of human social behaviour must take into consideration the physiology, biochemistry and social mechanisms of behaviour, in addition to the evolution of behavioural traits. more...
