Review:

Michael Fox s The Wild Canids is a book with a very special place on my bookshelves. I got it in 1984, sent to me personally by Dr Fox. I wanted that book desperately, I couldn t get it, and I took courage to write to Dr. Fox and ask for it. He sent it to me free and with a letter of encouragement, which went right to the heart of the young biologist I was at the time. The Wild Canids: Their Systematics, Behavioral Ecology and Evolution is one of the most important scientific books written on the topic....it is a classic that should be in the libraries of all serious students of animal behavior as well as professionals. --Roger Abrantes, author of Dog Language: An Encyclopedia of Canine Behavior and Evolution of Canine Social Behavior

The Wild Canids is an excellent source for anyone who wants to know about the behavior, ecology, and conservation of these amazing animals. Much of the information is as important as it was when the book was first published. --Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado; author of numerous books including The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, and Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior

One of its great merits (is) that...besides the encyclopedic knowledge compiled in it, it also contains so many indications to lines of promising research still open to us. The hope is well justified that this book will attract the attention of many biologists, ecologists, and ethologists, to a great group of mammals. --Konrad Lorenz, author of On Aggression, Man Meets Dog and other titles
