About the Author

Susan McHugh is Assistant Professor of English at the University of New England, Biddeford, Maine, USA.


Next time your pet pooch rolls over to have his tummy tickled, you might pause to consider whether he could really have wolf relatives. This is just one of the debates that Susan McHugh unravels in her enchanting book Dog, which draws on mythology, religion and "dog-cults" to show how we and our best animal buddies have shaped each other over centuries. You Magazine a well-informed and wide-ranging guide to the cultural history of the dog ... it is lavishly and eclectically illustrated. It surveys the whole gamut of human-dog relations, in religion and myth, literature, science, art, and entertainment. If I, who am largely indifferent to the species charms, found it an enjoyable and stimulating read, it can presumably be safely recommended to all real dog enthusiasts International Zoo News Unusually and surprisingly for books on dogs, McHugh has produced a work in which the facts are correct and the scope is balanced, broad, and fascinating to read.
