Ian Parker and Mohamed Amin investigate the condition of the African elephant, discussing how it arrived at this position and what the future might hold. The authors' general contention is that political chaos has been much to blame for the elephant's decline and that increases in the human population will probably do for the species in the long-run. A well-informed and thoughtful book which makes for a depressing read, especially with thirty years of hindsight. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Animals & Birds; ISBN: 0701126337.
