Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Care of Brute Beasts: A Social and Cultural Study of Veterinary Medicine in Early Modern England contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations and the acknowledgements. The book is about medical beliefs and practices for animals in early modern England. Although there are numerous texts on the subject of human health, this is the first to focus exclusively on animals during this period. The book shows that early modern veterinary medicine had a hierarchy of healers and was linked to the same principles and practices found in contemporary human medicine.
