Abstract

[Extract] In the preface of this book, the author states that this "is the story of my adventures with Ropalidia marginata during the last twenty years, of my dream of understanding the evolution of that pinnacle of social life in animals, eusociality" (p x). Having completed the book I can conclude his dream has been a fruitful one, and that the volume will be of significant value to all those interested in studying and understanding the dynamics of social systems, whatever species they happen to study.
