New major book on wolves

I assume this replaces “Wolves: Behavior, Ecology and Conservation”, ed. by Mech and Botiani-

The above is a very important book that I consult often and learned a great deal from. It is time for an update given all the recent research.

The new book is The World of Wolves: New Perspectives on Ecology, Behavior and Management. Edited by Musiani, Botiani, and Paquet

I just preordered it from for only $24. It will be $35 when it comes out later this month.

Update: Amazon has canceled pre-orders on this book. Larry Zuckerman posted in comments that these men have another new book out:  “A New Era for Wolves and Men”
see: I ordered that one instead.

    From the chapters I’ve seen it looks like it will be a collection of very interesting special topics but not a comprehensive one-stop for wolf information like the Mech and Boitani book.
