The Major Features of Evolution
George Gaylord Simpson 1953 Simon and Schuster

This classic volume applies the Modern Synthesis, modern evolutionary theory, to fossil lineages, bridging the gap between population genetics and paleontology. It has been criticized for presenting a gradualistic view of evolution, but is largely up-to-date and summarizes the central viewpoint of evolutionary scientists.
