This book is quite deceptive, I'm doing a dog behaviour degree and as the title states "the evolution of canine social behaviour" I anticipated the text to refer purely to canines!! It DOESN'T only about a quarter of the book covers canines, far too much is discussing other animals behaviour too. This is the worst book I've bought for my coursework and although I've tried to use this book to relate to my coursework, there is so little useable data, (as most sections dicussing canines is so small and wanders off into other animals behaviour) that I might as well not refer to it at all. If you need a book relating to other animals behaviours too, then this is the book for you but if you only want information on canines you will be as bitterly dissapointed as I was.

I found this book to be quite academic and so maybe would not recommend it to the general pet owner but it was also very useful in offering a persective on canine evolution and in particular, for me, dominance and submission. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found the non-canine examples very useful. It has definately helped me understand my dogs a little better.

I bought this book because I am doing my disertation on the evolution of social behaviour in canids for my BSc in Zoology. Yes, it does go into the behaviour of animals other than canines which is to be expected as the study of behaviour in animals sometimes requires comparison. (I did an assignment last year which looked into what may cause infanticide in Red Foxes - I looked at cases in of the behaviour seen in a variety of animals, even those which weren't closely related to foxes like bears, meerkats and banded mongooses as well as looking at its occurance in other canids) so the fact that it draws on behaviour seen in other species is not a problem! Hypotheses to explain the behaviour of different animals are often tested on a variety of species. One person on here mentioned that the book is academic - I did not find this at all - it may go in depth for people who aren't familiar with animal behaviour but for a thrid year student of a BSc degree it is basic. The auhtor doesn't even bother to do the reference (reading list) at the end of the book properly using the word wolfes instead of wolves and spottes for spotted hyena, as well as failing to mention the publishers in a lot of the books. There are no references to specific journal articles on canids (which is something you would expect) and the majority of references appear to be general references or from books which are old. He even mentions that Red Foxes aren't social - which is wrong when social group behaviour has been recorded in red foxes by mammal expert, Stephan Harris of Bristol University. No doubt the book would be ok as an introduction into animal behaviour for college students or for dog owners but not for university students who require more detailed knowledge. I have rated it a little higher than I think its worth because a lay person will have a different perception of the book's depth to me.

An excellent read by a very smart author; immensely riveting and enlightening. I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever wondered about the domestic dogs' beginings.
