A powerful exploration of our fellow animals
In A History of the World in 100 Animals, author Simon Barnes selects the animals who have had the greatest impact on humanity and on whom humanity has had the greatest effect. In this beautifully illustrated book, Barnes shows how we have domesticated animals for food and for transport. He discusses how a species of flea almost destroyed human civilization in Europe, while the slaughter of a species of bovines created one civilization and ended another. He also explains how pigeons made possible the biggest single breakthrough in the history of human thought.
In short, Barnes charts the close relationship between humans and animals, finding examples from around the planet that brings the story of our existence vividly to life.
