  • Origin of Speciesby Charles Darwin

    Start Publishing LLC 2012; US$ 1.99

    The Origin of Species is the landmark book that, for better or worse, puts science and religion at odds. Very few people have read this book and come away not believing in evolution. The detail of research is even by today's standards stunning; and the writing is still eminently readable. Second only to the Bible in its scope of influence, this book... more...

  • Mutual Aidby Kniaz Petr Alekseevich Kropotkin

    Start Publishing LLC 2012; US$ 1.99

    Written partly in response to Social Darwinism and in particular to Thomas H. Huxley's nineteenth-century essay, "The Struggle for Existence," Kropotkin's book drew on his experiences in scientific expeditions in Siberia to illustrate the phenomenon of cooperation. After examining the evidence of cooperation in nonhuman animals, pre-feudal societies,... more...

  • How the Zebra Got its Stripesby Léo Grasset; Barbara Mellor

    Profile Books 2016; US$ 13.32

    Why do giraffes have such long necks? Why are zebras striped? Why are buffalo herds broadly democratic while elephants prefer dictatorships? What explains the architectural brilliance of the termite mound or the complications of the hyena's sex life? And why have honey-badgers evolved to be one of nature's most efficient agents of mass destruction?... more...

  • Faint Echoes, Distant Starsby Ben Bova

    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 11.99

    Our neighboring planets may have the answer to this question. Scientists have already identified ice caps on Mars and what appear to be enormous oceans underneath the ice of Jupiter's moons. The atmosphere on Venus appeared harsh and insupportable of life, composed of a toxic atmosphere and oceans of acid -- until scientists concluded that Earth's... more...

  • Science In The Makingby E. A. Davis

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 253.00

    This text celebrates, in four volumes, the bicentenary of the "Philosophical Magazine" and chronicles the history of scientific development as chonicled in its pages.  Each volume previews a 50 year period and contains not only classical works but also papers of an amusing controversial nature.  Commentaries preceding each part set the papers in the... more...

  • Darwin: A Very Short Introductionby Jonathan Howard

    OUP Oxford 2001; US$ 7.99 US$ 6.87

    Darwin's theory that our ancestors were apes caused a furore in the scientific world and outside it when The Origin of Species was published in 1859. Arguments still rage about the implications of his evolutionary theory, and scepticism about the value of Darwin's contribution to knowledge is widespread. In this analysis of Darwin's major insights... more...

  • Genes, Categories, and Speciesby Jody Hey

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 87.99 US$ 75.67

    This book is a thorough re-examination of the "species problem", the continuing disagreement among biologists about how best to identify species and what constitutes useful and genuine biological divisions of groups and organisms. This book contributes to our understanding of the scientific issues related to the species concept through an exploration... more...

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20

    This book is designed to be the most authoritative synthesis of knowledge about the history of life. All the major groups of organisms are treated by the leading workers in their fields. This book should prove indispensable for evolutionary biologists, taxonomists, and ecologists interested in biodiversity. It will also become a sourcebook for oranismic... more...
