Moore, James and Desmond, Adrian (2004). Introduction. In: Moore, James and Desmond, Adrian eds. The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex by Charles Darwin. Penguin Classics. London, UK: Penguin Books, xi-lxvi.



In their introduction, James Moore and Adrian Desmond, acclaimed biographers of Charles Darwin, call for a radical re-assessment of the book, arguing that its core ideas on race were fired by Darwin’s hatred of slavery. This reprint of the second and definitive edition also contains suggestions for further reading, a chronology, and biographical sketches of prominent individuals.
