About this book

Politics and People in Ethology is an autobiographical account of many of the personalities and controversies – from the McCarthyism of the 1950s to the socio-biology battles of the 1970s – that have accompanied the development of animal behaviour studies from a mere branch of ecology or psychology into an independent discipline.

"Autobiographies by ethologists are relatively rare, and this one will be welcomed by historians as well as general readers interested in the early unfolding of this important branch of biology. The revelation of Konrad Lorenz's Nazi-era racism is a stunning and particularly useful original contribution."
- Edward O.Wilson, Harvard University
