Summary:
"Nearly a decade of fiercely divisive debate over foxhunting in Britain culminated with passage of the Hunting with Dogs Act of 2004. But the battle over the future of hunting is not yet resolved, and polarising right-or-wrong debates continue undiminished. This lively book recounts the long and colourful history of hunting in Britain and offers a fresh persepective on today's conflicts." -- from the rear cover.
