David Hancock's expert and lavishly illustrated study of sighthounds is, in his words, 'an expression of admiration for their astonishing athleticism, remarkable hunting skills and sheer stylishness'. He begins by tracing the history of coursing dogs since antiquity, then goes on to survey the British breeds - with the Greyhound in pride of place, but also covering the Whippet, Deerhound, Irish Wolfhound and Lurcher - and the sighthounds of the world, including Salukis, the Sloughi and racing Afghans.
