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
