Outlining the major arguments, evidence and theorists, from Darwin to Dawkins, Teach Yourself Evolution will give you a thorough understanding of a doctrine that has provoked fierce debate for over 150 years. You will delve into the intricacies of Darwin's theory and its development, focusing on natural selection, variation, speciation and the origins of man before considering what evidence there is to support evolutionary theory. Since the evolution debate has never been so vigorous, you will be exploring evolution in a modern context (how do superbugs develop?) and will also look at alternative theories such as creationism and intelligent design. Are there gaps in the evidence for evolution? Is Darwin's theory the logical explanation for the diversity of life? Making the subject contemporary and relevant, and examining various different perspectives, this book will be sure to challenge and engage you.
