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.
"Very glad to see the book. I suspect it should have some (very much needed) influence now against the background of the 'evo-devo revolution' and the belated recognition of Margulis's work." --Noam Chomsky, MIT Institute Professor and Professor of Linguistics, Emeritus "The invitation-only conference, being held in Altenberg, Austria, 'promises to be far more transforming for the world' than the 1969 [Woodstock] music festival, Mazur wrote online in March  for Scoop.co.nz, an independent news publication in New Zealand. That hyperbole has reverberated throughout the evolutionary biology community. . . ." --Science magazine "[T]he latest issue of the highly regarded Nature magazine has a cover article about the important but hidden Altenberg meeting on post-Darwinian research and new thoughts about evolution. We ran a piece of Suzan Mazur's groundbreaking work on this topic back in March and followed up with another in July. Nature even borrows from Mazur's term 'evolutionary Woodstock' to describe the critical meeting. The scientific establishment has been somewhat scared of dealing rationally and openly with new evolutionary ideas because of its fear of the powerful creationist movement. So for the topic to make the cover of Nature is a notable development." --Sam Smith, Editor, Progressive Review "Well, we don't have to organize human society 'Nature, red in tooth and claw.' No. We don't have to." --Richard Lewontin, Professor of Biology, Emeritus, Harvard University "And what Haldane, Fisher, Sewell Wright, Hardy, Weinberg, et al. did was invent. . . . The Anglophone tradition was taught. I was taught and so were my contemporaries. And so were the younger scientists. Evolution was defined as 'changes in gene frequencies' in natural populations. The accumulation of genetic mutations were touted to be enough to change one species to another. . . . No. It wasn't dishonesty. I think it was wish fulfillment and social momentum. Assumptions, made but not verified, were taught as fact." --Lynn Margulis, recipient of the US Presidential Medal for Science
