The afterword reflects briefly on the reasons for the continued decline of Darwin’s appeal among Arabic readers after the second World War. Explaining this in terms of broad social, political and cultural changes, notably the rise of new kinds of reading publics and counter-publics, it considers some of the factors behind the rise of anti-evolutionism and the rejection of the gradualist, reformist and positivist vision of so many of the Arab evolutionists examined in this book.
