About this book

In this controversial work the author asserts that the process of domestication was a natural one - being engendered by natural selection and not by human agency. Moreover, as well as being a brilliant evolutionary strategy it has been mutually beneficial to both man and animals. As such these arguments stand opposed to recent thinking on animal rights and man's traditional relationship with other animals.
