The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and translated into over 25 languages.
This 30th anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author as well as the original prefaces and foreword, and extracts from early reviews. As relevant and influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought.
Professor Dawkins articulates a gene's eye view of evolution - a view giving centre stage to these persistent units of information, and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication. This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research.

Dawkins's first book, The Selfish Gene, was a smash hit... Best of all, Dawkins laid out this biology - some of it truly subtle - in stunningly lucid prose. (It is, in my view, the best work of popular science ever written.) (H. Allen Orr, New York Review of Books)
The Selfish Gene is a classic. (Robin McKie, The Observer)
A genuine cultural landmark of our time. (The Independent)
Review from previous edition The sort of popular science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius. (New York Times)
Anniversary Edition. Voted 'Author of the Year' at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2007
