About the Author:

Mark L. Winston is a Fellow in the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University.

Review:

Mark Winston encourages the spread of sound information about the Africanized bee by providing a concise, factual introduction to its biology...As a unified account of the biology and impact of the Africanized bee, the book must be reckoned with by anyone involved with the immigration of this insect into the United States. (Thomas D. Seeley Nature)

Killer Bees is the best-written book on bees since Maurice Maeterlinck's The Life of the Bee (1901)...I not only recommend this very well written book but believe it to be essential in the library of all bee scientists. (Warwick Kerr Times Literary Supplement)

Now here is a book that is both fun to read and accurately informative on the history and current knowledge of Africanized honey bees...I recommend this book to beekeepers, students and researchers in bee biology and also to students in general because of its treasury of information handled in such a readable fashion. (E. E. Southwick American Bee Journal)

Mark Winston has written an excellent introduction to these bees...It manages to include a history of the Africanized bee since its debut in Brazil in 1957, a good review of the scientific literature, and a clear prescription of what Winston thinks beekeepers, politicians and even journalists ought to do to adjust to their presence. (Jonathan Beard New Scientist)
