Back cover copy

This provocative study shows that zoos tell us as much about humans as they do about animals. Through observations based on visits to zoos and conversations with zoo owners and keepers all over the world, the authors suggest that, while animals may not need zoos, urban societies seem to. A new preface takes note of dramatic changes in the perceived role of zoos that have occurred since the book's original publication.
