George Gaylord Simpson Paleontologist and Evolutionist. Léo F. Laporte. Columbia University Press, New York, 2000. 350 pp. $50, £32. ISBN 0-231-12064-8. Paper, $16, £10.50. ISBN 0-231-12065-6.

In lieu of a biography of Simpson (who is best known for his substantial contributions to evolutionary biology's "modern synthesis"), Laporte offers an intellectual study that is focused on the major areas of his subject's research.
