The Selfish Gene

40th Anniversary Edition

Fourth Edition

Richard Dawkins

Oxford Landmark Science

  • The Commemorative anniversary edition of this landmark work which powerfully encapsulates a new way of looking at living things - a gene's eye view
  • Completely re-typeset, to make the book even more attractive to read
  • Originally published in 1976, this book 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.
  • Part of the Oxford Landmark Science range: 'must-read' modern science and big ideas, which have shaped the way we think.

New to this Edition:

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