About this book

For centuries, reports of man-eating tigers in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore have circulated, shrouded in myth and anecdote. Here, the "big cat"-human relationship in this area during its 350-year colonial period is documented, re-creating a world in which people feared tigers but often came into contact with them, because these fierce predators prefer habitats created by human interference.
