What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Combining careful exposition with lively anecdotes, Woods has given us a fascinating and sustained discussion of the ideas surrounding livestock breeding as herds and flocks proliferated around the British Empire and became the base for major settler enterprises. Her approach is instructive for understanding imperial networks and their implications for today's globalized world.--William Beinart, University of Oxford



With incredible reach, Woods brings together a diverse group of fields--from natural history to the economics of empire to the study of mechanical refrigeration and shipping--to reveal the long and complex relationship between livestock and place and what it means to call particular breeds 'native.'--Thomas R. Dunlap, author of In the Field, Among the Feathered
