About this book

This is a definitive edition of R.A. Fisher's classic - probably the best known book in evolutionary biology after Darwin's Origin of Species. Incorporated into the text of the original 1930 Clarendon Press edition are the modifications Fisher made to the second edition, and unpublished material that was interleaved in Fisher's own copy.

Contents

Foreword by Professor Henry Bennett; The genetical theory of natural selection: 1930 edition; Appendix 1: Fisher's unpublished and 1958 revised edition amendments; Appendix 2: Editorial notes; Appendix 3: List of papers published by R A Fisher on topics related to The genetical theory of natural selection

Media reviews
For a book that I rate only second in importance within evolution theory to Darwin's "Origin" as joined with its supplement, "Descent of Man", and as, in my opinion, undoubtedly one of the greatest books of the present century, the appearance of a variorum version of the Genetical Theory of Natural Selection is a major event ... In some ways some of us have overtaken Fisher; in many, however, this brilliant, daring man is still far in front. W.D Hamilton FRS, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford
