Welcome to
DARWIN’S UNIVERSE: Evolution from A to Z

In his introduction to Darwin’s Universe: Evolution from A to Z (University of California Press), famed anthropologist Ian Tattersall of the American Museum of Natural History writes: “This book is crammed with the results of a lifetime of inquiry, and will become an indispensable reference for anyone interested in evolutionary thought and the changing milieus through which it has developed. But while you will probably pick it up for information and insight, I guarantee you’ll read it for fun.”

This improved and artistically enhanced version of Milner’s award-winning Encyclopedia of Evolution (Best Reference Book of 1990, American Association of Librarians) contains a hundred new essays, updated science, and a treasure trove of rare pictures and illustrations from the history of natural science. Michael Shermer, President of the Skeptic Society and Scientific American columnist wrote: “This is the single best volume ever published that covers all matters Darwinian from A to Z. A magnificent product of scholarship that is also a work of art.”

The late Harvard paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould called it: “The most complete compendium on evolution ever written . . . with the vibrant idiosyncrasy of true scholarship.” And the prestigious Journal of the Linnean Society of London characterized it as “the one book a biologist should take with him if he were marooned on a desert island.” The American Journal of Human Biology called it “mesmerizing and entertaining . . . written with grace, wit, and remarkable clarity.”

Darwin’s Universe is not only about the life and thought of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace but also the story of how evolution leaped out of science to influence drama, literature, exploration, cinema, law, politics, and popular culture.
