EVOLUTION Modern Library Chronicles

by | Read by John McDonough

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

As a concept, evolution has a hotly contested history, due to its implications with regard to religion, politics, ethics, and human self-definition. Edward Larson traces this complexity with fairness and accuracy, summarizing the battles and providing selections from thinkers on all sides of the debates. John McDonough's rich voice and measured delivery lend support to Larson's fairness. His gravity allows listeners to better understand the weight of older debates and gain objectivity on contemporary ones. Finally, McDonough's skill helps distinguish among the various highly charged voices active in the debate, greatly aiding comprehension.
