From the PREFACE. THIS work has been chiefly written because such a book was repeatedly asked for. No apology is therefore needed for its publication. In preparing it the writer has endeavoured to preserve the same plain and practical character which obtained for the "Practical Poultry Keeper" such a wide popularity. Theoretical discussions have been eschewed except in a very few cases, where a few words seemed likely to throw practical light on questions of deep interest to pigeon fanciers, such as the origin of Tumblers and of Tumbling, and the true ideal standard for Owls and Jacobins. The object has been to get the greatest amount of practical information on practical points into a small space. How far that object has been attained must be left to the judgment of the reader.

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.
