What happens when nature and humanity clash? In past centuries, wild animals who broke the law would be given lawyers and put on trial. But what's the solution now, as we humans dominate the planet and don't like it when wildlife gets in the way? In this fresh, funny and thoroughly-researched book, Mary Roach examines the problems, solutions and organisms involved in the harmonious co-habitation of humanity with the rest of nature.

Follow the author as she explores the realm of human-wildlife conflict, a crossroads of behavioural science and biology that brings us everything from the laser scarecrow to the langur impersonator. Travel to the bear-busy back alleys of Aspen, the gull-vandalised floral displays at the Vatican and leopard-terrorized hamlets in the Himalayas, then meet the behind-the-scenes experts trying to broker peace.
