DJ is rubbed and chipped. Previous owner's name is written on endpaper. 'Innocent Killers' is a rare piece of original and highly scientific research that reads with the pace and vividness of a thriller. The authors lived for four years with the wild dogs, jackals and hyenas which are the subject of this close study - but the animals have personal characteristics, habits and social status, and their story upsets many popular conceptions into the bargain.
