Employing her distinctive blend of expert knowledge and narrative charm, Clutton-Brock introduces us to the modern cat's wild relatives and distant ancestors in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, as well as the Middle Ages. She considers feline behavior in nature and in relation to human society and shows us how attitudes toward cats differ from period to period and place to place, sometimes manifesting themselves in legends and tales of witchcraft. Making the technical appealingly accessible, Clutton-Brock discusses the taxonomic status of the domestic cat and describes the modern breeds, from short-haired tabby to long-haired Persian to silken Russian blue, that have evolved from the original wild cat.
