About this book

Language: German

Charting the unique relationship between humans and animals and how certain species have been instrumental in the development of our understanding of the evolution of the natural world, 50 Tiere, die Unsere Welt Veränderten explores the role animals have played in our culture and history. Often taken for granted, the produce and work of animals have not only met man's basic need for food and clothing, the study of animals has allowed us to develop scientifically and culturally.

This German translation of Fifty Animals That Changed the Course of History is a fascinating exploration of the important role animals have played in our changing world, from the honeybee to the scarab beetle.

Summary in German:
Lebendige Geschichte – 50 Tierarten, die den Fortschritt der menschlichen Zivilisation entscheidend beeinflussten. Bibliophile Ausgabe in Halbleinen – ein ideales Geschenk für Tierfreunde und historisch Interessierte.

Die gemeinsame Geschichte von Menschen und Tieren ist verschlungen und reicht weit zurück. Schafe liefern uns Wolle, Kühe nähren uns mit Milch und Fleisch, Katzen leisten Gesellschaft, Bienen bestäuben Pflanzen und versorgen uns nebenbei mit Honig. Aber wem ist bewusst, dass ohne Regenwürmer ein Leben auf der Erde nicht möglich wäre? Dass auch die Laus einen Beitrag zur Französischen Revolution geleistet hat? Oder dass wir viele unserer medizinischen Fortschritte einer kleinen Fliege zu verdanken haben?

Eric Chaline unternimmt eine Zeitreise quer durch alle Kontinente und präsentiert 50 Tierarten, die unsere Zivilisation entscheidend geprägt haben. Mit Hinweisen auf Geschichte, Kunst, Literatur und Forschung öffnet dieses reich illustrierte Buch den Blick für eine erstaunliche Welt.
