It is fertile ground for graduate students seeking thesis topics and a great resource for anyone attuned to the tension between conflict and cooperation that makes social animals so interesting."—David C. Queller and Joan E. Strassmann, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Rice University, Science, Vol. 254, November 1, 1991

"Anyone with even a casual interest in social insects should read it."—Jon Seger, Nature, Vol. 353, October 31, 1991
