394 pages, Photos, illus
Now available in a revised and updated edition with a new afterword by the author.
Wilson is unarguably one of the greatest scientists of the century; author of seminal and eloquent works such as The Ants, Insect Societies, and The Diversity of Life; Pulitzer prize winner; champion of biodiversity and sociobiology; and, more than these, a shaper of the broad field he works within, evolutionary biology. This autobiography sheds a great deal of light on the academic world and the struggles Wilson faced, particularly at Harvard in conflict with James Watson. These, and other events, are covered in great detail, as are the developments in Wilson's own thinking, which led to his own famous theories, those of island biogeography, animal communications through pheromones, and especially the notion of biophilia.
