Pressestimmen

'... cogently argued account ... Paul White has created a sensitive and multifaceted portrait of Huxley ... A particular strength ... is the treatment of Huxley's relationships with Owen and Charles Darwin. ... One of the most consistently developed aspects of White's portrait is the depiction of Huxley as a defender of high culture ... beautifully written and persuasive account ...'
