About this book

The writer introduces the lion and its present habitat, and goes on to examine through written and visual records the interaction between this majestic animal and human beings in Asia, from the earliest available historical records to the present day. Also documented here are the censuses conducted in the last hundred years to monitor its population dynamics, and the attempts to find a second home for the lion, which still continue. The book finally examines the efforts made for the conservation of the species in the 20th century, and records its present status with indications of what the future holds for the lion in India.
