The Writings of Professor Robert M. Young
'Review of Burrow, Evolution and Society' 17k
John Burrow was working on evolutionary social theory while I was working on the wider Victorian debate on evolution and 'man's place in nature'. His excellent book came out just as I was tapped to give a Special Subject in the History Tripos, and he was (unjustly, in my view) obliged to move to Sussex. I took this opportunity to lament his departure. The review appeared in Cambridge Review 10 June 1967, pp. 409-11.
