The other volumes in the series are Evolution and the Genetics of Populations, Volume 2: Theory of Gene Frequencies and Evolution and the Genetics of Populations, Volume 3: Experimental Results and Evolutionary Deductions (Experimental Results & Evolutionary Deductions).

Wright states, "Too frequently, evolution is treated as a mere succession of favorable mutations rather than as a continual remolding of interaction systems in which the component genes cannot be treated as favorable or unfavorable in themselves," and notes that "It is possible to calculate the exact probabilities of any set of frequencies in the four cells of the 2 x 2 table from elementary probability theory."

Wright says that "natural selective value is a function of the system of genes as a whole rather than something that can be assigned individual genes," that "The ultimate character with which population genetics is concerned is selective value itself," and observes that "Darwin made extensive experiments with many species of plants but did not achieve any substantial advance." Wright asserts that "Such evolutionary processes as mutation, immigration, selection, and inbreeding ... may, however, be brought under a common viewpoint by measuring each by its effect on gene frequency....
