As would be expected from such a renowned academic stable, this book represents another first class, definitive publication in their ever-growing list of 'must have' publications. It is exceptionally well researched and well presented throughout, although it is certainly not a coffee table book, and is edited by two of Euorpe's leading canid workers.
