The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and
translated into over 25 languages. This 30th anniversary edition
includes a new introduction from the author as well as the original
prefaces and foreword, and extracts from early reviews. As relevant
and influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish
Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought.
Professor Dawkins articulates a gene's eye view of evolution - a
view giving centre stage to these persistent units of information,
and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their
replication. This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically
brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a
wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating
much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research.
