Description: In his new book Steve Jones takes up the challenge of rewriting the book of the millennium, Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species. Before The Origin, biology was little more than a series of unconnected facts. Darwin made it into a science, held together by his theory of evolution, the grammar of the living world. Darwin had only the facts of the nineteenth century to support his argument. Darwin's Ghostuses Darwin's logic, together with the astonishing discoveries of today, to make his case. It brings together the AIDS virus, dog shows, the sheep who never forget a face, the Battle of the Somme, and the garbage that floats in the Pacific, to prove the fact of evolution.

Filled with anecdotes, humor, and the latest research, Darwin's Ghost is a popular account of the science that makes life make sense. It catches the millennial mood and tells all of us for whom Darwin is merely a familiar name and some dimly remembered ideas exactly what he meant, and why we know he was right. It exposes the delusions of those who try -- and fail -- to explain society in evolutionary terms, and it shows how humans became the first species to step beyond the constraints of biology.
