A strange fancy took them, however, for the manner of passing their afternoons. After dinner they seated themselves round a table, and, in complete silence wrote to each other charming little notes containing the ideas that were passing in their minds. The "Penny Post," as they called it, so completely absorbed them, that they did not interrupt it, even when strangers came in. -from "Madame de Sta l" A queen of society is a woman who, by force of her reputation, good management, abilities, manners, and even her rank and fortune commands a circle of persons of eminence, of fashion, and of celebrity. So say "Grace and Philip Wharton"-a dual pseudonym for one writer, British author KATHERINE BYERLEY THOMSON (1797-1862), who also wrote the three-volume Memoirs of the Jacobites of 1715 and 1745-by way of introduction to this charming two-volume collection of biographies of some of the most marvelous women of their day.

In this landmark volume, an international group of scientists has synthesized their collective expertise and insight into a newly unified vision of insect societies and what they can reveal about how sociality has arisen as an evolutionary strategy. Jürgen Gadau and Jennifer Fewell have assembled leading researchers from the fields of molecular biology, evolutionary genetics, neurophysiology, behavioral ecology, and evolutionary theory to reexamine the question of sociality in insects. Recent advances in social complexity theory and the sequencing of the honeybee genome ensure that this book will be valued by anyone working on sociality in insects. At the same time, the theoretical ideas presented will be of broad-ranging significance to those interested in social evolution and complex systems.
