This book represents a culminating achievement by one of America's most articulate and energetic teachers of genetics. All those who have used Herskowitz's Study Guide and Workbook for Genetics and who have had the stamina to sit through all the 48 McGraw-Hill genetics teaching movies (which he prepared in collaboration with the foremost geneticists of America) will admire this textbook as a logical consequence of these two teaching projects. As such the book is a comprehensive survey of basic genetics, especially of the fruit fly, of maize, and of bacteria and viruses.

The material is organized into 49 short chapters in such a manner that either a one-or a two-semester college course may be taught from it. The text is clearly written, the material is logically presented and well illustrated, and each chapter contains a brief but excellent selection of references as a summary of principles and questions for study
