On Hunting : A Short Polemic, Paperback / softback Book

On Hunting : A Short Polemic Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Drawing on his own experiences of hunting and offering a delightful portrait of the people and animals who take part in it, Roger Scruton introduces the reader to some of the mysteries of country life.

His book is a plea for tolerance towards a sport in which the love of animals prevails over the pursuit of them, and in which Nature herself is the centre of the drama. 'A supremely witty book. ' EVENING STANDARD 'A pocket masterpiece. . . and a lyrical celebration. 'THE SPECTATOR 'This is a lovely book. . . A Classic. ' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'A brief, batty and beguiling book. ' NEW STATESMAN 'A personal polemic that is by turns moving, irritating, certainly right and plain wrong.

There are pages where I could agree with him more, followed by rafts of ideology that make me want to flog him' Jeanette Winterson, THE TIMES
