by Edward O. Wilson
1994, 390 pages, photos, drawings. Memoir by Pulitzer prize winner, entomologist, professor, and champion of biodiversity. The book charts Wilsons development as a scientist beginning with an early interest in insects, his student years at the University of Alabama and Harvard University where he studied the evolution of social ecology among animals, his field trips that led into new disciplines (biogeography and biodiversity), and academic infighting. It provides a lively account of the struggle between evolutionary and molecular biology during the 1960’s.
This book offers a rare glimpse into the making of a scientist, and the evolution of scientific theory. Paperback; 6 x 9″.
