About this book

Could greater publicity for Dolly the Sheep's unheralded predecessors, Molly and Morag, have kick-started an era of dangerous cloning? How might a differing itinerary for Darwin's travels have altered, halted or even further advanced our understanding of the animal kingdom? And were two monkeys really the difference between peace and the deaths of 250 000 Greeks? In most cases we live harmoniously alongside the other members of the animals kingdom in relative harmony, or else we've adapted methods of protecting ourselves from their threat. However, on those occasions when man and beast have come into direct contact they have managed to impact upon and inform our world more than many of history's greatest individuals and inventions.
