Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(9), 721. Reviews the book, Social insects, Vol. 1 edited by Henry R. Hermann (1979). The present volume is the first of a three volume treatise designed to provide a comprehensive treatment of the works of modern researchers studying insect sociality. The book provides a mixture of theory and data while covering a variety of topics including the genetics of sociality, the evolution of sociality, territoriality, and caste differentiation. The book is recommended for those who wish to secure a firmer grasp of knowledge of insect sociality. Provided with such a grasp, the reader should be disposed to exercise caution in generalizing to and from humans. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
