Ågren, J. Arvid: The Gene's-Eye View of Evolution

The central aim of this accessible book is to show how the gene's-eye view differs from the traditional organismal account of evolution, trace its historical origins, clarify typical misunderstandings and, by using examples from contemporary experimental work, show why so many evolutionary biologists still consider it an indispensable heuristic.'This book's conversational style, clear presentation and well-planted surprises make it ideal for both general readers and students in a broad range of fields. The selfish gene is alive and well and continues to inspire and irritate, which is why we see gene level arguments of fans and critics alike in past and present debates. Best of all, as we follow the gene's eye view around in Agren's book, we find ourselves educated about current views in exciting subfields-from evolutionary systems theory to Major Transitions and Selfish Genetic Elements- and rewarded with a treasure trove of references.'
