About this book

Unsurprisingly, the elephant is abundantly represented in African culture. In this lavishly illustrated anthology, eighteen scholars pay homage to both the African elephant and African creativity. The elephant's natural history is the starting point for this collection, while the global appetite for ivory and the consequences of the ivory trade are the focus of two essays and the epilogue, which also discuss the elephant as an endangered species.
