Edited By: RA Fisher and Henry Bennett
318 pages, no illustrations
This is a definitive edition of R.A. Fisher's classic - probably the best known book in evolutionary biology after Darwin's Origin of Species. Incorporated into the text of the original 1930 Clarendon Press edition are the modifications Fisher made to the second edition, and unpublished material that was interleaved in Fisher's own copy.
For a book that I rate only second in importance within evolution theory to Darwin's "Origin" as joined with its supplement, "Descent of Man", and as, in my opinion, undoubtedly one of the greatest books of the present century, the appearance of a variorum version of the Genetical Theory of Natural Selection is a major event ... In some ways some of us have overtaken Fisher; in many, however, this brilliant, daring man is still far in front. W.D Hamilton FRS, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford
