This first paperback edition of a Choice Magazine Outstanding Academic Book is a comprehensive, illustrated compilation of essays by some of the world's foremost authorities on horses. Horses through Time examines in laymen's terms the development of the lineage of horses through the paleontological record, the domestication of horses based on the archaeological record, the history of the interplay between humans and horses, the lively history of equestrian sports, and advances in equine veterinary medicine. To put horses in a global perspective, the book also discusses the living relatives of horses. Every chapter is topped off with exquisite photographs of horses, most of them in color.
