Combining stunning photos with a deeply moving essay, this book presents a passionate and unflinching exploration of zoos and what they teach us about animals, ourselves, and our relationship to the wild. This compelling work paints an unforgettable portrait not only of “life on the inside”, but of our views of the natural world and our place in it.

this is an excellent book- explaining whats wrong with zoos and how they arise out of our destructive culture. its a pretty quick read with clear answers in opposition to what pro-zoo people often use as reasons to keep zoos up and running. it is filled with stunning photographs, including some taken at como zoo.
