DAWKINS, Richard. The Blind Watchmaker. Longman Scientific and Technical. 1986.
8vo. Original cloth and wrapper; pp. xiv + 332, b&w illustrations throughout; fine.
First edition. In this book Dawkins proves himself to be a powerful and committed advocate of the theory of natural selection as he illuminates the mechanisms of evolution. The book's intention is as much polemic as it is scientific; Dawkins seeks to remove the barriers to the acceptance of Darwinism as the explanation for our existence.
