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 Amazon.com 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: http://www.amazon.com/New-Era-Wolves-People-Environment/dp/1552382702. 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.

    they have a companion book also that has already been released:

    A New Era for Wolves and Men

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
