Description

The second half of Charles Darwin's life was inextricably interwoven with the story of "The Origin of the Species" and this concluding volume of his biography looks closely at the wider publishing world of Victorian England and the different audiences which responded to Darwin's ideas. Darwin relied heavily upon his friends and family, his publishing contacts, his correspondence network, and the expanding geographical and economic horizons of Victorian Britain to distribute his views to the furthest corners of Empire. This biography considers the Darwinian revolution from his point of view and what it was like to become a scientific celebrity.
