The Extended Selfish Gene

Fourth Edition

Richard Dawkins

  • A commemorative anniversary edition of this landmark work which powerfully encapsulates a new way of looking at living things and their evolution - a gene's eye view
  • Originally published in 1976, The Selfish Gene remains a classic work in the development of evolutionary thought, and its influence is undiminished today
  • Includes the original prefaces including Robert Trivers' 1976 foreword, and extracts from a selection of early reviews

New to this Edition:

  • A new epilogue by Richard Dawkins, discussing the continuing relevance of these ideas in evolutionary biology today
  • Completely re-typeset, to make the book even more attractive to read
  • Includes two key chapters from The Extended Phenotype, which were written in response to the heated debate generated by The Selfish Gene
