Product description

Review

From Xenophon to Hitler via Chinese Polo and the battle of Waterloo, this extraordinary work demonstrates how much better world history looks with a horse in the foreground. --Meg Rosoff

A richly informative, lively and elegantly written overview of the horse in human culture and history... Anyone with even the slightest interest in horses and their past, present and future as human companions, allies or victims should be sure to read it and learn from it. --Peter Mitchell, Fellow in Archaeology, University of Oxford

No animal more deserves a rigorous and deep investigation of its place in human life, and no one is better positioned to provide it than Susanna Forrest. She approaches her subject with both love and lucidity, with a sharp awareness of the limits of what we can know about horses.

--Justin E. H. Smith, Professor of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Paris

Book Description

The fascinating story of the horse from their origins to the present day, via centuries of global human history.
