The Origin Of Species: By Means of Natural Selection or The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life by Charles Darwin

about

Charles Darwin's the Origin of Species is one of the landmark works that has helped shape the modern world.

Darwin's five-year voyage on HMS Beagle sparked the ideas that he molded into his revolutionary argument for the material origin of the diversity of the animal kingdom and the theory of natural selection. As was the case with the work of other great modern thinkers like Freud and Marx, Darwin's controversial and challenging theories have changed the way we look at our world and this book is perhaps the most readable and accessible of the great works of the scientific imagination. The Origin of Species has fresh applications today for its pioneering views on the ecology of plants and animals.

This edition also includes an introductory historical sketch and a glossary Darwin later added to the original text as well as an Introduction by Walter Cronkite.
