Abstract:

This book takes a unique stance on a controversial topic: zoos. Zoos have their ardent supporters and their vocal detractors. While we all have opinions on what zoos do, few people consider how they do it. Modern zoos have transformed themselves from places created largely for entertainment to globally connected institutions that emphasize care through conservation and education. Irus Braverman draws on more than sixty interviews conducted with zoo managers and administrators, as well as animal activists, and takes readers behind the exhibits into the world or zoo animals and their caretakers to offer a glimpse into the otherwise unknown complexities of zooland.
