Dan has been fascinated by elephants all his life, and in recent years has written largely about environmental issues and literatures. Elephant is one of Reaktion Books’ acclaimed Animals series, each on a separate species and its relations to human culture. This book covers elephants’ real and symbolic presence throughout the planet, from its prehistory to modern advertising, from its uses in war and work, in captivity and in the wild, in African and Asian religious iconography. Compact and richly illustrated.
