'I love the hare book' - Paul Muldoon 'The hunted, the subversive, the lascivious and the victim: the hare has been many things during its lengthy history and Simon Carnell's delightful pocket-sized book presents the story in an ingenious fashion. Natural history is blended with beautiful illustrations as the hare's place in myth, art, religion and the sporting sphere is delicately interwoven ...' - The Field 'The newest in Reaktion's wonderful series of richly illustrated books dedicated to individual animals, this is the first monograph in 35 years on one of the most fascinating of British animals. It considers the hare in history and art through the ages, explores its symbolic values, and provides the latest thinking on its behaviour, capabilities and physical nature.' - Country Life In Hare, Simon Carnell trawls through the art, legend, law and literature of this elusive quadruped that has had a more-than-fleeting presence in our culture ... an intriguing survey' - New Statesman 'Hare is impressively executed ... Carnell is an excellent guide through centuries of hare representations. He has an objectivity that serves his purpose well, in that he can offer excellent insights into human thinking. Rarely did I find Carnell's own attitudes intrusive.' - House Rabbit Journal 'A quite fascinating book that seemed to be the epitome of this fabulous animal. A must read - and at what a bargain price.' - Highland News
