Richard Dawkins - 11/16/2004, 8:00 pm

In his most recent work, The Ancestor's Tale, scientist Richard Dawkins
presents an expansive and comprehensive look at evolution, loosely
following the structure of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Firmly rooted in
his extensive knowledge of the history of evolutionary studies and the
latest developments in the field, Dawkin's own controversial theories -
and his expressive, passionate, and often self-reflective writing -
make The Ancestor's Tale read like a luscious novel. Throughout his
prestigious career, Dawkins has sought to rebut the widespread
misunderstandings of evolutionary theory from Darwin onwards. In
best-selling books including The Selfish Gene, Unweaving the Rainbow,
God, The Devil, and Darwin, and A Devil's Chaplain, Dawkins has exposed
common misperceptions and rendered accessible the newest and most
thought-provoking theories of the origins of life. Dawkins is the
Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science at
Oxford University.
