Description

A new theory of evolution begins to emerge in the pages of The Altenberg 16- An Expose of the Evolution Industry. Written by Suzan Mazur a print and television journalist whose reports have appeared in the Financial Times, The Economist, Archaeology, Omni, and many other publications the book is a front row seat to the thinking of the great evolutionary science minds of our time about the need to reformulate the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. We hear from world renowned scientists such as Richard Lewontin, Lynn Margulis, Niles Eldredge, Richard Dawkins, the ""evo-devo"" revolutionaries, NASA astrobiologists, and others. he book grew out of a story Mazur broke online in March 2008 titled ""Altenberg! The Woodstock of Evolution?"" about the now famous meeting at Konrad Lorenz Institute in Altenberg, Austria in July 2008, where 16 scientists discussed expanding evolutionary thinking beyond outdated hypotheses. (MIT will publish the proceedings in April 2010.) Science magazine noted that Mazur's reporting ""reverberated throughout the evolutionary biology community."" azur says she was punished for getting out in front of the story and banned from the symposium but realized

Author Biography

Suzan Mazur's interest in evolution began with a flight from Nairobi into Olduvai Gorge to interview the late paleoanthropologist Mary Leakey. Because of ideological struggles, the Kenyan-Tanzanian border was closed, and Leakey was the only reason authorities in Dar es Salaam agreed to give landing clearance. The meeting followed discovery by Leakey and her team of the 3.6 million-year-old hominid footprints at Laetoli. Suzan Mazur's reports have since appeared in the Financial Times, The Economist, Forbes, Newsday, Philadelphia Inquirer, Archaeology, Connoisseur, Omni and others, as well as on PBS, CBC and MBC. She has been a guest on McLaughlin, Charlie Rose and various Fox Television News programs. Her Web site is www.suzanmazur.com.
