Why is `blood thicker than water'? Are we innately violent or pacific? What is the best sex ratio? Why are plants and animals sexual? Why do we grow old and die? Over what do our chromosomes quarrel? Such questions motivated the life-work of WD Hamilton, widely acknowledged as the most important theoretical biologist of the 20th century. His papers continue to exert an enormous influence and they are now being re-published for the first time. Each one is introduced by an autobiographical essay written especially for this collection.
'This book is the evolutionary biologist's Harry Potter; the long awaited sequel to a captivating story of a young man with extraordinary powers' NATURE
