The English naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) occupies a unique position in the history of thought. With the exception of Darwin, Wallace was the most important developer of evolutionary theory in biology. He is also recognized as the father of modern biogeographical studies, and can safely be considered history's pre-eminent tropical naturalist. His work extended into many other areas as well, including anthropology, physical geography and geology, the theory of land use, social reform, and cosmology. Further still, he was the foremost defender of occult studies of his day. This fascinating anthology of Wallace's work, which includes a complete bibliography, reveals the scope and significance of this complex, dedicated scientist. In the many excerpts from the periodicals of his time, and the editorial introduction provided to each selection, the historical context of Wallace's life and work are brought into focus. This unique volume is the first to present the full range of the work of this major figure in science and natural history, and is compelling reading for both scientific and social historians.
