Details

Killing for Sport was previously published in 1915 at a time when widespread attention was being drawn to questions concerning the land, it was especially fitting that the part played by the sportsman should not be overlooked, and that not only the cruelty, but the wastefulness of the practice of breeding and killing animals for mere amusement, should be made clear. By including in this volume a number of recent essays, the work of several writers (each of whom is responsible only for the views expressed by himself), it has been possible to present the subject of sport as regarded from various standpoints. The book, in fact, is the first one in which the humanitarian and economic objections to blood-sports have been adequately set forth.
