Abstract:

"Hunting game has been a way of life for humans for two million years. Today, people around the world hunt both as a source of food and for sport. While its critics argue that hunting is barbaric and a rich man's sport, its supporters defend the activity in terms of tradition, culture, and population control.

The diverse perspectives in this volume will surprise students who may already have made up their minds on the subject"--
