Paris at the time of the French Revolution was the world capital of science. In this dazzling new insight into the City of Light, Steve Jones takes a sideways look at its history, its revolutionary science and the scholars who laid the foundations, in the age of the guillotine.
Steve Jones is professor of genetics at Galton laboratory of University College London, where most of his academic research has been looking at snails and what they can tell us about population genetics. Steve Jones is well known as a regular broadcaster and writer of popular science books, including The Language of the Genes, In the Blood and Y: The Descent of Man. He gave the 1991 Reith Lecture, has written, presented and appeared on TV and radio shows.
