Is hunting a bygone activity, out of touch with modern life; or is it valuable as an escape from it? Does hunting promote violence, not just to animals, but to humans as well? Is hunting, with its connection to the land and frontier experience, a heritage worth preserving? These questions form the foundations for discussion in ""Killing Tradition"". Simon J. Bronner sorts through the issues and goes behind the headlines to examine the basis of this hotly charged subject. Using case studies as evidence, Bronner looks at a topic at the center of modern cultural debate.
