9780113100392: Horse Power: A History of the Horse and Donkey in Human Societies

It may be argued that without the horse, human history would have been entirely different. The great battles of the ancient world would have been mere squabbles - without fast transport and movement of goods, weapons and food, invaders would have been powerless. Beginning with the natural history and biology of the wild species of equid, the author travels through the centuries until mechanical power eventually took over from horsepower. This study of the role of the horse in society is intended for biologists, archaeologists, historians and horselovers.
