About this book

Sewall Wright (1889-1988) had an extraordinarily scientific career that spanned more than seventy-five years. Documenting Wright's legacy in genetics and evolutionary theory, this biography is based on extensive interviews with Wright himself and others who knew him and on the entire correspondence between Wright and such figures as R.A. Fisher, Theodosius Dobzhansky, E.B. Ford, Motoo Kimura, Arthur Cain, and James F. Crow.

Media reviews

"Provine's thorough and thoroughly admirable examination of Wright's life and influence, which is accompanied by a very useful collection of Wright's papers on evolution, is the best we have for any recent figure in evolutionary biology."
– Joe Felsenstein, Nature

"In Sewall Wright and Evolutionary Biology [...] Provine has produced an intellectual biography which serves to chart in considerable detail both the life and work of one man and the history of evolutionary theory in the middle half of this century. Provine is admirably suited to his task [...] The resulting book is clearly a labour of love which will be of great interest to those who have a mature interest in the history of evolutionary theory."
– John Durant, Times Higher Education Supplement
