Summary
"As fears of human extinction escalated during the ecological movement of the 1970s, dinosaurs communicated their metaphorical message of extinction, urging us from our destructive path. Using an eclectic variety of examples, this book outlines the three-fold 'evolution' of dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters in pop culture, from their poorly understood beginnings to the 21st century"--
