London: Macmillan Limited, 1977. — 316 p. — ISBN 0-8129-0688-8.Inside the Animal World provides fascinating insights into mating rituals and feeding habits, the instincts of the predator and the fight-or-flight response of the hunted. The "language" by which various species communicate, their intelligence and capacity to learn, their odd and still-puzzling behavior, are discussed in wide ranging detail. For the animal lover everywhere, for the bird-watcher, the armchair naturalist, and the student, this beautifully illustrated encyclopedia is a rare source of pleasure and knowledge, combining anecdote and scientific accuracy. Maurice and Robert Burton have meticulously observed the rituals and causes of animal and insect behavior in a life-time of study. Their comprehensive portrait of animal life is a welcome contribution to the literature and an important addition to the library of the nature lover and amateur naturalist. With 3 indexes, 43 color photographs and many line drawings, the more than 600 kinds of animals and 350 species included are easily accessible to the reader and make this a valuable reference book as well as one to enjoy.
