Samenvatting

Charles Darwin: A Reference Guide to His Life and Works provides an important new compendium presenting a detailed chronology of all aspects Darwin's life. The extensive encyclopedia section includes many hundreds of entries of various kinds related to Darwin - people, places, institutions, concepts, and his publications. The bibliography provides a comprehensive listing of the vast majority of Darwin's works published during and after his lifetime. It also provides a more selective list of publications concerning his life and work. *Includes a nearly year by year chronology detailing Charles Darwin's life, family, and work. *The A to Z section includes many entries on concepts and people important in Charles Darwin's life and his work, emphasizing during his lifetime but extending somewhat backwards and forwards from there. *The bibliography includes all of Charles Darwin's articles and books published in his lifetime in English and other languages, as well as a selective list of works about him and his work. *The index thoroughly cross-references the chronological and encyclopedic entries.

Recensie(s)

Highly Recommended: Charles Darwin: though this is a name most people recognize, most know little about the man himself. One of the first entries in Rowman & Littlefield's new Significant Figures in World History series, this slim volume provides a wealth of detail. Paleobiologist Archibald (San Diego State) is the author of Origins of Darwin's Revolution (CH, Jul'18, 55-4011) and Aristotle's Ladder, Darwin's Tree (CH, Mar'15, 52-3638), among other works. His subject matter expertise is evident as he outlines Darwin's life and research in several ways. A 20-page chronology encapsulates every year of Darwin's adult life; 126 pages of brief encyclopedia entries summarize significant people, publications, concepts, and more; a 38-page bibliography inventories Darwin's writing as well as major works about Darwin and his research; an 18-page index provides additional access points. This year marks the 210th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 160th anniversary of the publication of the landmark On the Origin of Species. This accessible reference guide is likely to appeal to readers who want to learn more about Darwin and his significant contributions to our ever-evolving understanding of the world around us. * CHOICE *
