&i;`Few people in the world are better qualified than John Maynard Smith to explain evolution to us, and no subject more than evolution deserves such a talented teacher'&o; Richard Dawkins.
The author looks at the subject of evolution, as explained a hundred years ago by Darwin and Wallace in their theory of natural selection. He describes how their theory has been confirmed, but at the same time transformed by recent research, and in particular by the discovery of the laws of inheritance.
'Few people in the world are better qualified than John Maynard Smith to explain evolution to us, and no subject more than evolution deserves such a talented teacher. Like Darwin himself, Maynard Smith knows that his story if intrinsically interesting and important enough to need no more than clear, patient, honest exposition. The new Introduction is an elegant essay which can be recommended in its own right as a summary of important recent developments in evolutionary theory. This book is the best general introduction to the subject now available.' Richard Dawkins, from the Foreword to the Canto edition
