Since first publication of this controversial book, much of the initial opposition to the ideas it contained bas been replaced by a general, although often grudging, acceptance of many of them. Advances in knowledge, especially at the molecular level, have enhanced general awareness and interest in epigenetics and the evolution of systems that store and transmit information and put many of the authors speculations on a more solid basis. This paperback edition contains a new Preface that sets out the major changes in the scientific world and in the authors own thinking that have occurred since the book was published. A new Appendix provides a selected bibliography of the many books and articles about epigenetic inheritance and its role in evolution that have appeared since first publication of Epigenetic Inheritance and Evolution.
