Savages and beasts
The birth of the modern zoo
A lucid, sophisticated, and nuanced account of the role that Carl Hagenbeck played in the
history of the public exhibition of animals and people. Nigel Rothfels offers a complex but
accessible account of the zoo as a cultural institution that has shaped our ideas about animals.
The choice of illustrations is excellent and the book should find a wide audience among
historians, anthropologists, and general readers interested in the relationship between humans
