Livestock raisers and healers throughout the world have traditional ways of classifying and preventing or treating common animal diseases. Many of their "ethnoveterinary" practices offer viable alternatives to conventional Western-style veterinary medicine - especially where the latter is unavailable,
unaffordable, unreliable, or inappropriate. This highly interdisciplinary and international volume provides a critico-analytic overview over the many facets and findings of ethnoveterinary research and development. From sociocultural, political-economic, and environmental as well as biomedical viewpoints, the book presents reviews and case studies of traditional veterinary knowledge and practice, along with historical perspectives, theoretical discussions and research methodologies. At a larger level,
the anthology exemplifies the many potential benefits, for people everywhere, of systematically studying and building upon such rich bodies of "ethnoscience" as that embodied in local/traditional veterinary medicine.
