Darwin's Sacred Cause

'Darwin's Sacred Cause'I have just finished reading a pre-publication copy of Adrian Desmond and James Moore's book, Darwin's Sacred Cause: Race, Slavery and the Quest for Human Origins, which was kindly sent to me by Peter from the Beagle Project. Nice to see Peter's name mentioned in the acknowledgements.

I have posted a review of this important new addition to Darwin studies in the books section, and cross-posted it on the Beagle Project blog.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
