"The Greenwood Guides to Great Ideas in Science" provides titles in context so that students are able to grasp the significance of profound scientific truths. Each volume - written by a leading historian or philosopher of science - traces the development of a particular scientific concept from ancient times to the present day. Thus, the series helps students understand not only what scientists know, but how they came to know it. Each volume: supports the recommendations of national science education standards on the history and nature of science; provides copious print and electronic resources for further research; is heavily illustrated with historical images and scientific graphs and charts; and, includes a glossary of important terms used in scientific research past and present that enables students to better understand the language of science and a timeline of important events.

This text enables readers to form their own ideas of evolution by plotting the course of biological change from the ancient time to the present. It explains the contributions of the great thinkers of the past and present, ranging from Darwin and Mendel, to Watson and Crick. There is good coverage of modern-day principles and biochemical explanations for evolution. Greenwood Guides are especially appropriate for use as reference materials. Because it has been 150 years since the publication of Origin of Species and recently was Darwin's 200th birthday, every school should ensure that they have up-to-date and comprehensive references like this." - NSTA Recommends "This book is recommended for students of science history, and for high school, college, and public libraries." - American Reference Books Annual "We are at a critical point in the struggle for a scientific understanding of life. This book moves us exactly in the right direction. I recommend it for anyone interested in the contemporary discussions about evolution and the opposition to it." - Catholic Library World "This work provides an in-depth study of evolution from both an historical and scientific perspective...The author explains complex concepts in accessible language, making this a good source for high school science students." - Library Media Connection "Brown describes the history of the field from ancient times to today and explains how the argument for evolution has developed over time. A stimulating introduction addresses related skepticism...[U]seful additions for libraries building their science collections in anticipation of the 2009 bicentennial of Darwin's birth. (Reviewed with All Things Darwin)." - School Library Journal "I recommend this last chapter to biologists, teachers, and concerned parents of school-age children. Also helpful in the back matter, are a chronology of biological developments, glossary, and bibliography." - Reports of the National Center for Science Education
