Book review: The Autobiography of Charles Darwin

Darwin wrote this short autobiography for his family between the ages of 67 and 71, starting in 1876. It was not intended for publication, and when it was published, shortly after its author's death, certain passages, mainly those in which he criticised religion were omitted. This was because some of his family members, especially his widow, felt that they should not be included. The present version, edited by Darwin's grand-daughter, Nora Barlow, restored these passages. It also included some other biographical material not reviewed here. [More]
