The History Of The World In 100 Animals

In The History of the World in 100 Animals, award-winning author Simon Barnes selects the 100 animals which have had the greatest impact on humanity and on whom humanity has had the greatest effect.

Animals have played a vital part in human development, from their first domestication for food and transport, through providing the power for agriculture, to making or breaking civilisations: Barnes argues that a species of flea came close to destroying human civilisation in Europe, while the biggest single breakthrough in the history of human thought was made possible by pigeons.

This book, beautifully illustrated throughout, aims to help us to understand our place in the world, so that we might do a better job of looking after it.
