Summary
"Humans have manipulated and changed the ways of life of other mammals for thousands of years. This new edition of A Natural History of Domesticated Mammals explores the progress that has been made in understanding the origins of domestication and its spread, both biologically and culturally, across the world. The archaeological evidence for the earliest dating of domestication of each species is included, reflecting the recent expansion in such studies."--Jacket
