Excerpt from Der Praktische TaubenzuchterDas im Herbste des Jahres 1879 erschienene Buch "The practical Pigeon Keeper by Lewis Wright," dessen Uebersetzungsrecht eben so wie das des "Practical Poultry Keeper von demselben Verfasser" der Verein fur GeHugelzucht in Munchen von den Verlegern cassel, Petter Galpin u. Comp. in London erworben hat, ist ein Buch, das die Aufmerksamkeit aller rationellen Taubenzuchter verdient. Der Verein fur Geilugelzucht hat mich Unter zeichneten beauftragt, dieses Werk ins deutsche zu uber tragen. Ich bin diesem Auftrage mit Vergnugen nachgekomrnen, und ich spreche hier den Wunsch aus, die deutschen Zuchter mochten die hochst wichtigen Winke in Betreff der Zucht der Tauben, welche in diesem Buche niedergelegt sind, nicht spurlos an sich vorubergehen lassen. Ein derartiger Erfolg wird dem Heraus geber und dem Uebersetzer zur Genugthuung gereichen.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

In fünf Monaten wird der Wachmann einer Pariser Bank, der als einzigen Nutzen seiner Tätigkeit das Öffnen des Tores vor dem Direktionswagen erkannt hat, das Eigentum an seiner kleinen Mansarde endgültig erworben haben, wird ein weiterer Markstein seines Lebensplanes gesetzt sein. Doch dieser fatalistische Ablauf wird an einem heißen Freitagmorgen im August 1984 jäh vom Erscheinen einer Taube in Frage gestellt.

Where the Wild Things Are Now

Domestication Reconsidered

Domestication has often seemed a matter of the distant past, a series of distinct events involving humans and other species that took place long ago. Today, as genetic manipulation continues to break new barriers in scientific and medical research, we appear to be entering an age of biological control. Are we also writing a new chapter in the history of domestication? Where the Wild Things Are Now explores the relevance of domestication for anthropologists and scholars in related fields who are concerned with understanding ongoing change in processes affecting humans as well as other species. From the pet food industry and its critics to salmon farming in Tasmania, the protection of endangered species in Vietnam and the pigeon fanciers who influenced Darwin, Where the Wild Things Are Now provides an urgently needed re-examination of the concept of domestication against the shifting background of relationships between humans, animals and plants.
