"This book is very interesting, well written and easy to read...It is a well-balanced mix of the history of domestication and of how these domesticated mammals have been integrated in human society for various economic, cultural and aesthetic reasons." Canadian Society of Zoology Bulletin
Animals, especially mammals, have always been a part of human society. For thousands of years, humans have manipulated and changed the way of life of other mammals, and have depended on these animals for their survival. This new edition of A Natural History of Domesticated Mammals explores the origins of domestication and its spread, both biologically and culturally, across the world. It contains up-to-date information on all the wild species of mammals that are the ancestors of the domestic ones we know today.
