Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0930741250, Hardcover)

The elephant is abundantly represented in African culture. In this anthology, 18 scholars pay homage to both the African elephant and African creativity. The elephant's natural history is the starting point for this collection. Other essays discuss the animal's place in religious imagery, local economies and regional cultures. The global appetite for ivory and the consequences of the ivory trade are the focus of two essays and of the epilogue, which also discusses the elephant as an endangered species.
