About this book

Historical analysis of the ideas surrounding symbiosis and the quiet revolution surrounding molecular biology, beginning in the 1960s, and its gradual acceptance as more than a dissenting footnote to Darwinian notions of evolution.

From reviews of the hardback: 'a scholarly account of one of the most important, yet neglected, areas of 20th-century biology New Scientist 'a delightful historical complement to the available texts ... a scholarly overview of the conceptual aspects of the subject.' Nature
