19 BARATAY, ERIC & HARDOUIN-FUGIER, ELISABETH. Zoo: A History Of Zoological Gardens In The West.
Reaktion Books, London: 2004. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Wild animals have fascinated human observers since time immemorial. The story of our interest in collecting, classifying and dominating Nature looms large; thus it is surprising that the history of menageries, zoological gardens and zoos as we know them today has been so poorly documented. This gap is addressed by Zoo. In the Renaissance, wealthy aristocrats showcased exotic beasts in private menageries. Safely caged, animals inspired the interest of naturalists and fed the curiosity of the masses. By the 19th century, increased urbanization and colonization aided the expansion of zoos in which animals were tamed to serve as domesticated livestock. Nowadays, with many natural habitats under threat of extinction, the social function of zoos is less clear. Such institutions both present the illusion of wild animals in a natural state to a nostalgic public and find themselves justifying their existence as saviors of endangered species. "[An] impressive book." --Sunday Times "A fascinating and wide-ranging history of zoos from the menageries attached to aristocratic palaces and villas in the 1500s to those in modern cities. . . . Provides the intriguing and often harrowing background to one of the most agonising dilemmas of our time: with ever more species threatened with extinction in their natural habitat, should we seek to preserve them in special sanctuaries and if so where and how?" --The Times "A richly informative book. An absolute must for those interested in zoo history--or anyone fascinated by homo sapiens' changing relationship with our fellow creatures." The Independent | Books of the Year "A fascinating cultural and architectural history." -- "Not just a compendium of pretty pictures--though you'll be stunned by the 400 images--this book traces the history of zoos throughout the world. Among similar books, it is unique in exploring the social ramifications of our relations with the peaceable kingdom." --Library Journal | Best Books of 2002 Biological Sciences: Natural History Culture Studies History: General History
