Charles Darwin's theory of evolution completely revolutionized the study of biology, but as David Sloan Wilson suggests, the Darwinian revolution won't be truly complete until it is applied more broadly—to everything associated with the words "human," "culture," and "policy." From the breeding of hens to the timing of cataract surgeries to the organization of an automobile plant, Wilson shows how an evolutionary worldview provides a practical tool kit for understanding our world. If we can become wise managers of evolutionary processes, we can solve the problems of our age, including our stewardship of the planet Earth.
"Splendid…. An excellent argument that evolution applies to culture as well as organisms…. [Wilson is] a masterful educator."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
