From the Inside Flap:

The Ultimate Book of Mastiff Breeds
For the first time ever, here is a book to embrace all the magnificent Mastiff breeds. Sharing a common lineage from the ancient Mastiff type, a number of different breeds have been developed with varying appearances and characteristics. However, they also have certain traits in common ? most particularly their size, their strength, and their courage. Editor Douglas Oliff has recruited an international panel of experts to examine the Mastiff type in general, and the specific Mastiff breeds in particular. Tracing their common heritage, the Mastiff character is analysed, highlighting strengths and weaknesses and appropriate training methods. There is detailed information on nutrition for giant breeds, and relevant material has been gathered on health care and breed associated conditions. There is also a fascinating section on the Mastiff in art, showing how artists have portrayed the Mastiff through the ages. The Mastiff breeds that have special coverage include: the Mastiff, the Bullmastiff, the Neapolitan Mastiff, the Spanish Mastiff, the Pyrenean Mastiff, the Dogue de Bordeaux, the Tibetan Mastiff, the Fila Brasileiro, and the Anatolian Shepherd Dog. In each case, there is an account of the development of the breed and its original working role. Focusing on what makes each breed unique, there is an interpretation of the Breed Standard followed by an in-depth analysis of breed character. Expert advice is given on choosing a puppy, assessing both character and conformation, and there are special tips on living with the breed of your choice. The Ultimate Book of Mastiff Breeds, a book for the true Mastiff enthusiast, is lavishly illustrated with 300 colour photographs.
