Ghost Stories for Darwin: The Science of Variation and the Politics of Diversity

In a stimulating interchange between feminist studies and biology, Banu Subramaniam explores how her dissertation on flower color variation in morning glories launched her on an intellectual odyssey that engaged the feminist studies of sciences in the experimental practices of science by tracing the central and critical idea of variation in biology.
 
As she shows, the histories of eugenics and genetics and their impact on the metaphorical understandings of difference and diversity that permeate common understandings of differences among people exist in contexts that seem distant from the so-called objective hard sciences. Journeying into areas that range from the social history of plants to speculative fiction, Subramaniam uncovers key relationships between the life sciences, women's studies, evolutionary and invasive biology, and the history of ecology, and how ideas of diversity and difference emerged and persist in each field.

EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED COLLECTION

Read one of the greatest masterpieces of all time in a beautiful edition.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet, who built an esthete and hedonist dandy character.
Inseparable from his huge literary talent, his extraordinary personality, biting wit, flamboyant dress and glittering conversation ensured his fame.

This book is a collection of five short stories first published in 1891.

The Canterville ghost tale has been widely adapted for the screen and stage - an American family buys a haunted castle in England from Lord Canterville, where creaking chains and blood stains have been terrorizing the area for centuries... But what can do a poor ghost against the common sense of a businessman, the powerful stain remover of his wife and the malice of their children, always ready to make him pranks? All this would drive any self-respecting ghost crazy!

Lord Arthur Savile's crime tells the story of Lord Arthur Savile, who is introduced by Lady Windermere to a chiromantist who reads his palm and tells him that it is his destiny to be a murderer. Lord Arthur wants to marry, but decides he has no right to do so until he has committed the murder...

The other three short stories - The sphinx without a secret, The model millionaire, The portrait of Mr W.H. - are extraordinary stories which also mix mystery and humor and make a witty dissection of Victorian society.

These outstanding stories are must-read of classic literature and will delight readers of all ages.
