Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824830962, Paperback)"Waiting for Wolves in Japan is one of the finest studies of human-animal relations to appear in recent years." —Anthrozoös
"A superb study that reveals much about human-animal interactions and relationships among humans. This book is sure to be of interest to students of anthropology, ecology, and animal studies, as well as Asian studies. . . . [Chapters consider] human-wildlife relations by focusing on harm caused by wild boars, monkeys, deer and serow (a goat-antelope), and bears. . . . [The book] also looks at wolves and the debate over their possible reintroduction. . . . Those interested in gaining insight about the social repercussions of environmental issues and the symbolic and material connections among humans and other creatures are sure to find this book to be essential reading." —Journal of Asian Studies
"This book is more than a story of human-wildlife conflict because it provides tremendous detail about the lives and habits of hunters, farmers, foresters, and animal-lovers of many sorts, as well as valuable insights into the behavior of Japanese wild pigs, deer, serow, macaques, and bears. Fro this reason, Knight’s book will interest those studying the human dimensions of biodiversity conservation, community natural resource management, and the behavior and conservation of large mammals in human-dominated landscapes." —Conservation Biology
"John Knight successfully introduces welcome sophistication into the discussion of human-wildlife relations. Yet he writes with admirable cogency and simplicity to reach a wider audience in environmental anthropology, cultural studies of nature, and the world of conservation policymakers. This fine book should receive a large and appreciative audience." —Journal of Japanese Studies
