When this classic work was first published in 1975, it created a new discipline and started a tumultuous round in the age-old nature versus nurture debate. It was voted by officers and fellows of the international Animal Behavior Society the most important book on animal behavior of all time. "It is impossible to leave Wilson's book without having one's sense of life permanently and dramatically widened" (The Atlantic). Listed by The National Review as one of the 100 greatest books of the twentieth century.
