About the author:
Born in Brooklyn, New York to Canadian parents, Wavell Cowan then spent an idyllic childhood in a paper mill town in northern Quebec. With a kindergarten teacher as mother and a Jewish father, he became a voracious reader. High school and college years in Montreal (spent largely on hockey rinks and tennis courts - an early passion) led to a degree in mechanical engineering from McGill University. A summer on a showboat on the Ohio River performing before audiences from Cincinnati to Louisville exemplified the arrival of a second passion - the theater. During his doctoral studies in Appleton, Wisconsin, a third passion emerged - scholarship. This led to a career as an independent pulp and paper scientist, developing process equipment and test instruments now in pulp and paper mills worldwide. His passion for problem-solving led to leadership roles in multiple elected town positions and in other organizations from community newspapers to a community orchestra. These passions and life experiences made possible this book.

Escaping an Evolutionary Dead-End

Authored by Dr. Wavell F. Cowan

We are creatures indelibly shaped by 14 billion years of evolution. And therein lies the story that Wavell Cowan, a non-academic scholar, scientist, inventor, businessman, and community activist, sets forth in Escaping an Evolutionary Dead-End. He suggests that we are entering a period when new possibilities make feasible a necessary escape from our current evolutionary pathway. The stories that flow from his practical experiences carry us persuasively into a new era of possibilities and reveal the concepts on which they are based. Anyone with interests in societal development, the economy, education, health-care, etc., will find within the wide scope of this book many thought-provoking ideas.
