Abstract:

[This] is a book of human characters and human concerns, of history and politics, as well as a bestiary of predators. How did the rise and fall of Nicolae Ceaucescu, and that dictator's fatuous self-image as a mighty hunter, affect the extraordinary abundance of bears in Romania's mountains? How did the territorial sovereignty of a minor Indian prince, the Nawab of Junagadh, play a critical role in saving the Asiatic lion from extinction? [The book replies] some serious questions about the past, present, and future of big predators. But there are no ultimate answers - only decent people facing hard dilemmas, magisterial animals sorely threatened, a message of warning, and some wonderful stories.-Dust jacket.
