Review

The book contains some heavy anthropological debates, but it is also a fascinating read. Animal Welfare An attractive collection, especially for teaching that goes a long way to redress the misleading impact of some ingrained and outdated notions associated with domestication ... It includes some individually strong essays and a useful synthesis The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute Timely and stimulating ... a much-needed overview of current domesticatory questions ... Anyone researching or teaching ecological anthropology will find something of interest here. Social Anthropology

Format: Paperback
This book does cover more than philosophical aspects of domestication, such as disease transmission, but philosophy is the overriding theme. I found it tedious, but if you have a great interest in the topic in general or one of the specific topics listed below, it may be worth a look. Just remember, it's philosophical, so, for example, the last chapter isn't about "how to feed your dog", it's about various groups debating about how to feed dogs (whole carcasses, kibble, or ???).
