"A very novel, important, and global view of the complex interrelationships between predators and prey. Science, culture, and practical issues meet head on, as they must, in a book that surely will change existing views about the role of fear in the evolution of behavior. Only world-renowned and indefatigable field biologist Joel Berger could pull off such a comprehensive analysis of how past and present must be studied as we try to figure out how all animals - nonhuman and human - will be able to share harmoniously our one and only planet in the future." - Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals"
