Theory of Evolution by John Maynard Smith
Book DescriptionAll living plants and animals, including man, are the modified descendants of one or a few simple living things. A hundred years ago Darwin and Wallace in their theory of natural selection, or the survival of the fittest, explained how evolution could have happened in terms of processes known to take place today. In this book John Maynard Smith describes how their theory has been confirmed, but at the same time transformed, by recent research, and in particular by the discovery of the laws of inheritance. This reissue reprints the third edition of John Maynard Smith's classic account, adding a substantial new introduction covering recent developments. A new foreword, by the author of The Selfish Gene and The Blind Watchmaker, commends the book to a fresh generation of readers.

Origins of Life, Paperback (March 2000)
In this volume, John Maynard Smith and Eors Szathmary propose that during evolution, there have been a number of major transitions in the way in which information is passed between generations. These include the appearance of the first replicating molecules, the emergence of co-operative animal societies, and the unique language ability of humans.
Evolutionary Genetics, Paperback (January 1998)
Focuses on evolution and population genetics. This book talks about research on game theory, discuses sex and host-parasite interactions, and contains a chapter on molecular genetics and the construction of evolutionary history. It is useful for advanced undergraduates interested to know this topic within the context of evolutionary biology.
Major Transitions in Evolution, Paperback (October 1997)
