Richard Dawkins is an ethologist?someone who studies animal behavior?and evolutionary theorist.

A University of Oxford graduate, Dawkins is the first to hold the Charles Simonyi Chair in the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford. He did his doctorate under the Nobel prize-winning ethologist Niko Tinbergen.

Dawkins?s first book, The Selfish Gene (1976; 1989) became an international bestseller and The Blind Watchmaker (1986) won the Royal Society of Literature Award and the Los Angeles Times Prize. His other bestsellers include River Out of Eden (1995), Unweaving the Rainbow (1998) and A Devil's Chaplain (2003). His most recent book is The Ancestor?s Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution (2004). A new book, The God Delusion, will be released later this year.
