Abstract

Linking to former research on the duck’s quack, a research project which was a newspaper worldwide feature and the topic of numerous global radio broadcasts in 2004, this study of the duck examines its place in natural history and the human cultural imagination. Described by the Times Literary Supplement as ‘Victoria de Rijke's superlative addition to Reaktion's Animal series, Duck serenades and expands its subject, giving this charming, iconic bird a larger and infinitely more complex life than the one we commonly accord it . . . both the birds and this book deserve our regard.'
