About this book

Examines in detail the relationship between people and domesticated cattle, a resource that has been vital to civilisation but long ignored and neglected. Carlson considers the impact of science, technology, and economics on cattle, and how they in turn have influenced human history.

A provocative discussion that is bound to engage readers from outside academic circles.--Julia H. Haggerty "H-Net Reviews "
