This fascinating history of one of our best-loved animals, first published in 1986 to much critical acclaim, traces the development of the pig as an integral part of agriculture and describes the remarkable changes that have taken place both in its breeding and in its husbandry. This new edition, richly illustrated with paintings, photographs and line drawings, includes the famous "Dissertation upon Roast Pig" by Charles Lamb, along with a new introduction and updated final chapter taking account of the most recent agricultural developments regarding the powerful pig in our society.
