Reaktion Animal Series. Part of an unusual series that looks at the subject animal and its place in human history. Dogs are perhaps our most popular pets, and certainly one of the best-loved of all animals. This book unravels the debate about whether dogs are descended from wolves, and moves on to deal with canines in mythology, religion and health, dog cults in ancient and medieval civilizations. Ultimately Dog reveals how we have shaped dogs over the millenia, and in turn how they have shaped us. Other titles in this animal series are available.
