Traces an extraordinary relationship between species, explaining how elephants may have been "nursemaids" to human evolution and how they have influenced history, art, religion and popular culture as no other animal. Scigliano joins a grueling chase after crop-raiding rogues in Sri Lanka and probes the bitter battles over the roles of elephants in zoos and circuses. Focuses on the Asian elephant.
'Love, War and Circuses is a remarkable book for anyone who has ever been stirred by the up-close sight of these remarkable fellow creatures' Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature
