      Book Description

      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.
