9780198575191: The Selfish Gene

This book tells of the selfish gene. A world of savage competition, ruthless exploitation, and deceit. But what of the acts of apparent altruism in nature the bees who commit suicide when they sting to protect the hive, for example? Professor Dawkins holds out the hope that our species has the power to rebel against the designs of the selfish gene.
