The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection — A Complete Variorum Edition
This is perhaps the most important book on evolutionary genetics ever written. Nearly every topic currently discussed is to be found in it, often dealt with in brief passages of condensed prose (it…
Altruism and Related Phenomena, Mainly in Social Insects
With better knowledge of heredity and with more facts regarding the social insects to draw upon, Weismann recognized the possible conflict between intergroup and intragroup selection in the evolution of worker attributes.
A formal theory of the selfish gene
- BiologyJournal of evolutionary biology
A formal theory of the selfish gene is developed, using optimization theory to capture the analogy of ‘gene as fitness‐maximizing agent’ in mathematical terms and to assess the various criticisms that have been levelled at the theory, dispelling some and strengthening others.
The Logic of Animal Conflict
Game theory and computer simulation analyses show, however, that a “limited war” strategy benefits individual animals as well as the species.

Genomic Imprinting and Kinship
This collection of Haig's papers represents a unique comprehensive overview of the state of evolutionary biology and argues that imprinted genes exemplify an extraordinary within-individual conflict, while shaking up the authors' fundamental ideas of what it means to be an individual.
