David Drummond - Rats, Mice and Religion & Other Curiosities
This book takes a different approach to rats and mice from the norm and explores the extent to which man has regarded them in relation to religion and other aspects of his life, particularly in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and the Far East.
David Drummond is a zoologist who was educated at University College, London and Pennsylvania State University. His professional work has been largely concerned with rodent control research and advice, a filed in which his expertise has been used overseas by many aid agencies including the World Health Organisation of the United Nations. Since retiring in 1988 as the Chief Scientific Officer responsible for the UK Ministry of Agriculture's Central Science Laboratories involved in research into Plant Pests and Diseases, he has occupied himself with gardening, overseas travel and writing books and articles on the history of rodent control particularly in relation to the successful development of better mouse traps.
David is a huge supporter of Dorking Museum and donates all of the proceeds of his books to us.
