Roots, a former zoo director and now a consultant to zoo conservation programs, offers a detailed overview of the controlled breeding of wild animals, known as domestication. The first chapter of the book is devoted to the original or prehistoric domesticates, when and where they were first controlled by man, and their subsequent changes. Coverage of the more recent domesticates follows, with chapters on each of the classes of vertebrates, from fish to mammals. The zoo profession is discussed separately, and a final chapter looks at domesticates that have regained their freedom, living in the manner of their wild ancestors. B&w and color photos of animals abound. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
