About this book

Historical and cultural account of the tiger, showing how the decline of its natural habitat and relentless pressure from poachers and farmers have turned a naturally retiring, solitary creature into an aggressive man-eating predator. Green describes a variety of cultural contexts, from the White Tiger in Chinese Taoist mythology and the Chinese Zodiac, to Lord Siva in Indian Hindu mythology who is almost always pictured wearing a tiger skin. In the West, Bacchus, or Dionysos, god of wine and mystical ecstasy, was pictured riding a tiger, and tigers have been used by artists such as Salvador Dali to symbolize sexuality and desire.

Media reviews

Tiger is written with passion ... it is to be hoped that Susie Green's book will be widely read and will help in the struggle to save the tiger from the threat of its very probable extinction. Anthrozoos well-researched ... Superbly illustrated, Tiger celebrates one of the world's most charismatic creatures at a time when its future sadly remains uncertain.
