Fourth Edition

Richard Dawkins

  • With a new epilogue by Richard Dawkins, discussing the continuing relevance of these ideas in evolutionary biology today

  • Originally published in 1976, The Selfish Gene remains a classic work in the development of evolutionary thought, and its influence is undiminished today.
