Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea [Hardcover] by Zimmer, Carl, Carl Zimmer

HarperCollins 2001-09-01 0060199067 / 9780060199067 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover 
First edition with full number line. Corners bumped. Inside pages clean. This dazzling companion volume to one the most important series in PBS history tells the compelling story of the theory of evolution from Darwin to twenty-first-century science.Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was breathtaking, beautifully written, staunchly defended, defiantly radical. Yet it emerged long before paleontologists and geologists worked out the chronology of life on Earth, long before biologists uncovered the molecules that underlie heredity and natural selection. Not until the late twentieth century was the true scope of its power revealed.This remarkable new book, featuring more than 150 color illustrations, presents a rich and up-to-date view of evolution that explores the far-reaching implications of Darwin's theory and emphasizes the power, significance, and relevance of evolution to our lives today. After all, we ourselves are the product of evolution, and we can tackle many of our gravest challenges, from the lethal resurgence of antibiotic-resistant diseases to the wave of extinctions that looms before us, with a sound understanding of the science. It can help us see our lives in connection to everything that has come before and to every form of life on Earth today.Filled with rich narrative, award-winning science writing, and the most up-to-date information on topics ranging from Darwinian medicine and sexual selection to the origins of language, evolutionary psychology, and the controversies surrounding creationism, Evolution tells in riveting detail the story of a remarkable scientific journey, from the emergence to the triumph of an idea.

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution, Dawkins, Richard
16 Dawkins, Richard The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution
Free Press 2009-09-22 1416594787 / 9781416594789 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
Signed by author on title page without inscription. First Edition with full number line.Intelligent Design is being taught in our schools; educators are being asked to teach the controversy behind evolutionary theory. There is no controversy. Dawkins sifts through rich layers of scientific evidence, from living examples of natural selection to clues in the fossil record; from natural clocks that mark the vast epochs wherein evolution ran its course to the intricacies of developing embryos; from plate tectonics to molecular genetics to make the airtight case that we find ourselves perched on one tiny twig in the midst of a blossoming and flourishing tree of life and it is no accident, but the direct consequence of evolution by non-random selection. His unjaded passion for the natural world turns what might have been a negative argument, exposing the absurdities of the creationist position, into a positive offering to the reader: nothing less than a master's vision of life, in all its splendor.
