Extinction: Bad Genes or Bad Luck?  
By David M. Raup Translated into Arabic by Mostafa Ibrahim Fahmi

Scientists have directed a good deal of attention to the topic of extinction in recent years. In this book, Raup, a mathematically oriented paleontologist, discusses the role of extinction in evolution, attempting to differentiate the effects of natural selection ("bad genes") and extraterrestrial causes ("bad luck").
