The human response to cats has always been paradoxical. They have been worshipped as creatures with god-like attributes, feared as killers, and for centuries hunted for their skins. Today some distinctive subspecies are already extinct and many species and subspecies are endangered.

In Wild Cats of the World, author David Alderton discusses the complex questions of the exploitation of wild cats and the importance of their conservation. From the magnificent great cats of Africa and Asia to the exquisitely patterned cats of the Americas and the less well-known European species, this volume provides superb insight into these beautiful and enigmatic creatures.

This intriguing volume explores the development and behavior of wild cats, with chapters covering form and function, evolution, and distribution. It also examines each species in detail, providing information on distinctive features such as sight, hearing, hunting techniques, and locomotion. Complementing the clear, informative text are 100 color photographs taken specially for this book as well as distribution maps and a full checklist of wild cat species.
