Overview

Is hunting a bygone activity, out of touch with modern life; or is it valuable as an escape from it? Does hunting promote violence, not just to animals, but to humans as well? Is hunting, with its connection to the land and frontier experience, a heritage worth preserving? These questions form the foundations for discussion in Killing Tradition: Inside Hunting and Animal Rights Controversies. Simon J. Bronner sorts through the issues and goes behind the headlines to examine the basis of this hotly-charged subject. Using case studies as evidence, Bronner looks at a topic at the center of modern cultural debate.
