Dominic Dyer, chief executive of the Badger Trust, picks apart the science and politics behind the badger cull.
He exposes the cruelty and cynicism central to Britain's most controversial wildlife policy and clears badgers of blame for rising levels of TB in cattle.
He shines an unflattering light on the unhealthy close relationship between the National Farmers Union and the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
He also criticises the BBC, the veterinary profession, and environmental NGOs such as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth.
Foreword by BBC Springwatch presenter Chris Packham.
