Selfish Gene

The world of the selfish gene is one of savage competition, ruthless exploitation and deceit. In this second edition of his book, author Richard Dawkins shows that the selfish gene is also the subtle gene. And he holds out the hope that our species alone has the power to rebel against the designs of the selfish gene. This book is a call to arms – it is both manual and manifesto – and it grips like a thriller.
