From antiquity to the nineteenth century, the royal hunt was a vital component of the political cultures of the Middle East, India, Central Asia, and China. Besides marking elite status, royal hunts functioned as inspection tours and imperial progresses, a means of asserting kingly authority over the countryside. The hunt was, in fact, the "court out-of-doors," an open-air theater for displays of majesty, the entertainment of guests, and the bestowal of favor on subjects. In the conduct of interstate relations, great hunts were used to train armies, show the flag, and send diplomatic signals. Wars sometimes began as hunts and ended as celebratory chases. Often understood as a kind of covert military training, the royal hunt was subject to the same strict discipline as that applied in war and was also a source of innovation in military organization and tactics. Just as human subjects were to recognize royal power, so was the natural kingdom brought within the power structure by means of the royal hunt. Hunting parks were centers of botanical exchange, military depots, early conservation reserves, and important links in local ecologies. The mastery of the king over nature served an important purpose in official renderings: as a manifestation of his possession of heavenly good fortune he could tame the natural world and keep his kingdom safe from marauding threats, human or animal. The exchanges of hunting partners—cheetahs, elephants, and even birds—became diplomatic tools as well as serving to create an elite hunting culture that transcended political allegiances and ecological frontiers. This sweeping comparative work ranges from ancient Egypt to India under the Raj. With a magisterial command of contemporary sources, literature, material culture, and archaeology, Thomas T. Allsen chronicles the vast range of traditions surrounding this fabled royal occupation.

On the Hunt is the story of deer-hunting in Wisconsin, from the spear-throwing Paleo-Indians to the sportsmen of today. Meticulously researched by one of the state's most prolific outdoor writers, On the Hunt covers subsistence and sport hunting, deer camps, changing deer management policies, and recent developments and controversies, from human encroachment on deer habitat to CWD. Range maps and charts tracking annual herd populations and harvest goals complement Willging's engaging storytelling. Drawing from Department of Conservation papers, hunting magazines, newspapers, historic photos of classic deer camps, and the personal stories of hunters and deer managers, On the Hunt offers a fascinating glimpse into a distant and not-so-distant past, when the hunt joined men in almost mythical unity and bucks were seemingly larger than life. An ardent sportsman with nearly 25 years of hunting experience, Willging understands that deer-hunting is as much about the smell of the woods in autumn and the meticulous cleaning of a fine rifle as it is about bringing home a whitetail. His story of how Wisconsin's own World War II flying ace, Richard Bong, squeezed in a few days of hunting while home on leave vividly illustrates the sport's powerful pull on hearts and minds. Willging also engagingly conveys the important tradition of the deer-hunting camp, from a humble two-man shack in Chequamegon National Forest (like the one he shared with his best friend, Steve) to the grand old Deer Foot Lodge founded in 1912 in Vilas County. On the Hunt is perfect preparation for the avid sportsman's annual fall trek with friends and family into the woods.

"This historic review reveals that hunting has been important in this Territory ever since it was first colonized by early humans some 14 000 years ago. In the early days it was a matter of survival not only for aboriginal people but later on also for white immigrants. The availability of wildlife for food allowed such activities as prospecting, mining, surveying, over-wintering by whalers or trail constructions to take place, which would otherwise not have been possible, or only at a much slower pace, relying on the import of food from outside sources. In their respective developments no other jurisdiction in Canada has faced comparable events such as the Gold Rush, when the Dawson population jumped from about 500 to 30 000 in a matter of two years and food had to be procured for them; the overwintering of Whale-ships necessitating the feeding of 1500 to 2000 people with game meat, and the constructions of the Alaska Highway, when numerous American soldiers were given the same hunting rights as Yukon residents. But Yukon's wildlife recovered from these set-backs and currently probably has a similar distribution and abundance as it did in early historic times. But new challenges are on the horizon. Climate change will effect habitat. Some wildlife species will benefit from it, others will be negatively impacted. New diseases and parasites will find the altered environment suitable for their existence. The ever- improving technology will make hunters better equipped and more effective in killing game. Let us hope that these various potential problems can be managed and that current and future generations can continue to enjoy Yukon's magnificent wilderness and wildlife."--

Hungarian partridge were first introduced to Saskatchewan 100 years ago. The birds flourished and soon expanded their range to include the American West and Midwest. Only in the last several decades have hunters turned serious attention to these tremendous game birds, but due to their fickle and often mysterious nature, the challenge has proven difficult—at best—for the majority of us. Ben O. Williams, however, has been writing about and hunting Huns for over 30 years, having accumulated over 5,000 hours afield in their pursuit with his ever evolving line of Brittany spaniels. Ben is the most accomplished and eloquent mentor for Hungarian partridge hunters presently found on planet earth, and this informationpacked book is the proof. Don’t lend it to anyone, and don’t lose it, for it provides you with all the distilled knowledge required to attain consistent success on your own Hun hunts.

Hunting is one of the most fundamental and significant of human social activities. Yet few issues can guarantee such controversy and such a dramatic popularisation of opinion. In this, the first full serious history of the subject for a generation, Rupert Isaacson puts hunting for live prey in its proper historical and social perspective. Isaacson's unique perspective as both practitioner and critic, his refusal to fudge the moral and ethical issues and his scrupulous fairness to both sides of the debate make this book both a beautiful record of one of the most enduring and complex of all human instincts and an essential contribution to the modern political controversy over hunting to hounds.
