Summary
  • Drawing on accounts from India to Africa and California to Tennessee, and on research in neuroscience, psychology, and animal behaviour, G.A. Bradshaw explores the minds, emotions, and lives of elephants. He argues that a breakdown of ancient elephant cultures has resulted from exposure to violent trauma and urges readers to support elephant recovery
  • "Drawing on accounts from India to Africa and from California to Tennessee, as well as on research in neuroscience, psychology, and animal behavior, G. A. Bradshaw explores the minds, emotions, and lives of elephants. Wars, starvation, mass culls, poaching, and habitat loss have reduced elephant numbers from more than ten million to a few hundred thousand, leaving orphans bereft of the elders who would normally mentor them. As a consequence, traumatized elephants have become aggressive toward people, other animals, and even one another; their behavior is comparable to that of humans who have experienced genocide, other types of violence, and social collapse. By exploring the elephant mind and experience in the wild and in captivity, Bradshaw bears witness to the breakdown of ancient elephant cultures."--BOOK JACKET
