"I learned a great deal from Epistasis and the Evolutionary Process
, and I congratulate the editors on an excellent choice of authors. Graduate students and other scientists will find the book a very useful smorgasbord of recent research into theory and facts of epistasis. The volume does not attempt to resolve the 70-year-old controversy about the importance of epistasis and shifting balance. Instead, it shows that epistasis plays a central role in a much wider and more interesting variety of evolutionary problems than seemed possible even ten years ago."--Science
"This book is important because it marks the transition form a view of epistasis fixed on past controversies to a forward-looking approach where we will have a fresh look at the issues before us and embark on an exciting and significant expansion of the purview of evolutionary theory."--Evolution
