There are plenty of books out there about living with and training a dog. The Dog: A Natural History is something much wider-ranging: an in-depth look at every aspect of the species, from prehistoric origins to its biology, its behaviour, and its relationship with humankind. An initial chapter on Evolution & Development looks at dogs' ancestors. Chapters on Anatomy & Biology, Society & Behaviour, and Dogs & Humans follow, accessing the most recent studies on everything canine. From hunting patterns to diversity, and training methods to classification, you'll find everything you ever wanted to know in this comprehensive study. To finish, a canine Directory offers extended profiles and portraits of a range of the most popular breeds. From first to last, it's a book that will prove irresistible to anyone curious about how the dog gained his prime position in the human world.
