Dust jacket notes: "Anachronistic though it may seem in the Space Age, men in red coats and old-fashioned top hats still climb on to horses and go fox-hunting in Britain - and some of them die in falls because they refuse to wear modern protective headgear. Hunting has never been so threatened by its opponents as it is today, yet it has never been so popular. There are nearly 200 registered packs of foxhounds and, although hunting has been modified by agricultural and social changes, it gathers more followers every season. At least as many women ride to hounds as men, and so do their children. Thousands of people who have no interest in horses go hunting by motorbike, by car and on foot. All in all, the sport engages the enthusiasm of about a million people. But who are they? How do they hunt foxes and why? Why do they dress as they do? How much does hunting cost them? How cruel is the sport? Should it be banned? There can be few such utterly British sporting activities so widely known about yet so little understood. Diary of a Fox-Hunting Man is a full, entertaining and at points penetratingly disturbing account of the sport in the 1980s. It tells how costly, exclusive, exciting and dangerous hunting is; how foxhounds are bred and trained and exactly how foxes are killed. It reveals the delicate intricacies of hunting etiquette, such as always saying 'good-night' when breaking away from a hunt, even in bright daylight. It clarifies the nuances of clothing rules, explaining what kind of hat may be worn with which colour coat, and why; how a stock should be tied; when hats should be doffed; what 'ratcatcher' garb is and 'butcher' boots are. Hunting vocabulary is interpreted; why hounds are said to 'riot', what 'cur-dogs' are, what 'blooding' is, why the fox is called 'Charlie' - and how long it would last if hunting were abolished."
