About this book

Michael Clark's acclaimed study of the biology and natural history of the badger has been completely updated for this popular collection and now also includes a description of the controversy surrounding the culling of badgers in response to the prevalence of tuberculosis in cattle.

This new edition includes a gallery of the author's photographs and a foreword by Dominic Dyer, Director of the Badger Trust.

Review of the first edition:

"Provides a succinct summary, from first-hand experience, of all aspects of the life of this ancient, but largely unfamiliar, member of our much-diminished native fauna [...] In this excellent series of monographs the authors achieve a very pleasing use of a light touch to convey serious information, both in text and illustrations."
The Guardian

Succeeds in presenting a good deal of information in a very readable and entertaining fashion. An informative and amusing book."

"Will appeal to all nature lovers whatever their age or interest [...] As the reader's knowledge of badgers develops, the text becomes increasingly compelling."
Times Educational Supplement

Anyone reading this book will become a badger expert."
