More on Darwin in Serbia

The Serbian Minister of Education resigned earlier today.

I have received a lot of newspaper clips (including a yet-to-be published manuscript) etc. from Serbia, and will write a longer analysis in a couple of days.

There is also an interesting and tragic story about the first translation of The Origin into Serbo-Croatian in 1878 (I am aware of only one other translation before that, into German in 1860), and I will provide juicy details later.


The Darwin crisis in Serbia ends. Here are several renditions:
