    One thought on “Fox”

    1. سبب قراءتي للكتاب هو أنه هو الكتاب الإلكتروني الوحيد القصير الموجود على مكتبة جوالي: فأصبحت صفحاته رفيق دائم في أوقات الإنتظار المملة، صفحة في طابور تقديم أوراق الوظائف، وصفحة في الطائرة، وصفحة ثالثة أثناء اجتماع طويل وممل. لينتهي بي الحال إلى الغرق في الكتاب لنهايته برحلة [...]

    2. I was hoping to learn more about the natural history of the fox, and come away with a deeper understanding of the biology of an animal whose distribution and ecological impact is widespread. Instead, this book predominately shared social perceptions of this enigmatic creature. Whilst I found the tales and historical accounts interesting, and the bizarre behavior of humans towards the Fox worth reflecting on, this book is likely to resonate with an audience that is motivated by gaining insight in [...]

    4. This is part of a large series of minimalist-titled books ("Bear", "Bee", "Lobster", etc.) by Reaktion Books about specific animals.I was disappointed by it. There's some information about foxes and their natural history in the introductory chapter, and in a couple appendices. Most of the book, though, explores subjects like: foxes in legends and mythology; the symbolism of foxes; all the various things that have been named after foxes; foxes in art and cinema; the history of British fox hunting [...]

    5. Perhaps I was spoilt by Helen Macdonald's amazing Falcon but this was just not as good as what I was hoping for. I wanted a mix of cultural history (which this does a good job with, especially the history of foxhunting) and solid natural science, but Wallen does cultural history all the way; I began this knowing very few facts about foxes and even when Wallen is supposedly talking about the actual animal, he is more interested in what the human names for the various fox species supposedly indica [...]

    6. ( نحن البشر، لطالما شعرنا بالتوتر حيال رؤيتنا لجزء كبير من أنفسنا في الثعالب، ولجزء كبير منها في أنفسنا، ولهذا، حاولنا ومازلنا نحاول تأكيد إنسانيتنا بإبادة وقمع ونسيان ثعلبيتنا)يرصد هذا الكتاب، على مدى ستة فصول، العلاقة التاريخية المتشابكة بين الثعلب والإنسانمن التاريخ ال [...]

    7. Another of Reaktion's Animal series, so the usual applies. Brief, but well-written and nicely illustrated.

    8. not so much an exploration of the many miracles foxes can perform as of the myths that have been built around them throughout history. what larks!
