The innovative collection of original essays focuses on the ways in which
geography, gender, race, and religion influenced the reception of Darwinism
in the English-speaking world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries. The contributions to this volume collectively illustrate the
importance of local social, physical, and religious arrangements, while
showing that neither distance from Darwin's home at Down nor size of
community greatly influenced how various regions responded to Darwinism.
Essays spanning the world from Great Britain and North America to Australia
and New Zealand explore the various meanings for Darwinism in these widely
separated locales, while other chapters focus on the difference it made in
the debates over evolution.
