This biography provides an understanding of William Bateson as well as a reconciliation of diverging views (e.g. the hierarchical thinking of Gould and the genocentrism of George Williams and Richard Dawkins). Evolutionists may thus, at long last, present a unified front to their creationist opponents. The pressing need for this text is apparent from the high percentages reported not to believe in evolution and the growth of the so-called "intelligent design" movement. …mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "This work includes key events in Bateson's career and is strengthened by discussion of the rediscovery of Mendelian principles by early-20th-century geneticists. ... this interesting work will appeal to biologists and historians of science. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (J. S. Schwartz, Choice, Vol. 46 (7), March, 2009) "The presnt book is particularly welcome in helping to fill a significant gap in the history of genetics ... . Donald Forsdyke has now extended and completed the book, a major undertaking for which both geneticists and historians should be grateful." (Peter S. Harper, Human Genetics, Vol. 125, 2009) "This volume will be of enormous benefit to historians of science who like to follow how ideas are born or die and why participants of different sides of each controversy held such rigid views of their own work and saw little merit in their competitor's research. ... I recommend reading all 745 pages of this biography. It is worth the effort ... ." (Elof Axel Carlson, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 84, December, 2009)
