Chiron was a centaur - half man, half horse - symbolising the joining together of humans and animals. Is this close relationship what is happening, or what could happen, between people and animals in circuses and zoos?

Dr Marthe Kiley-Worthington, one of the world's foremost animal behaviour experts, was commissioned by the RSPCA to carry out an independent, scientific study of circus animals, in comparison with animals in zoos and other husbandry systems and in the wild. The results of her 18 month investigation are in this book.

Dr Kiley-Worthington makes constructive recommendations for all sides of the debate to consider, aiming to bring circuses, zoos and the animal welfare lobby together in the interests of the animals. This book cuts through the ignorance, woolly thinking and clouds of emotion that often muddy animal issues. The result is essential reading for everyone interested in animals, the environment and people's future on this planet.

Condition: Very good. Signed by author inside front cover.
