Fierce, menacing, and mysterious, badgers have fascinated humans as living animals, abstract symbols, or commercial resources for thousands of years—often to their detriment.

I love Reaktion's Animal series. The mixture of natural history and cultural history of the animal each volume focuses on makes the series a pleasure to read. If I spot one in the shops not already in my collection I will generally buy it without further thought.

A little under 300 pages of Badgers: The Nonfiction. Don't go into this expecting lit, but a pretty darn good volume if you want to learn more about badgers and how they've been portrayed/treated
