About this book

A View to a Death in the Morning shows us how hunting has figured in the Western imagination from the myth of Artemis to the tale of Bambi. This richly illustrated book will captivate readers on every side of the dilemma, from the most avid hunters to their most vehement opponents to those who simply wonder about the importance of hunting in human nature.

" [...] A razor-sharp analysis that succeeds in raising doubts about deeply rooted and widely shared assumptions concerning the position of human beings in nature."
– Robert Rydell, Science
