In the introduction to this Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition, Edward O. Wilson shows how research in human genetics and neuro-science has strengthened the case for a biological understanding of human nature. Human sociobiology, now often called evolutionary psychology, has in the last quarter of a century emerged as its own field of study, drawing on theory and data from both biology and the social sciences.

Didn't actually read, just scanned, as it is old after all. I do wish I'd read all these evolutionay biology books in order at the time. After the fact wasn't too helpful, especially independently. Read full review
