 About the Book 

It is not often that a work can literally rewrite a persons view of a subject. And this is exactly what Rudwicks book should do for many paleontologists view of the history of their own field.—Stephen J. Gould, Paleobotany and PalynologyRudwick has not merely written the first book-length history of palaeontology in the English language- he has written a very intelligent one. . . . His accounts of sources are rounded and organic: he treats the structure of arguments as Cuvier handled fossil bones.—Roy S. Porter, History of Science
