The first book-length history of American zoos, Animal Attractions examines the meaning of nature in the city by looking at the ways zoos have assembled and displayed their animal collections.Situated literally and culurally in the American middle landscape, zoos are concrete expressions of longstanding tensions between wildness and civilization, science and popular culture, education and entertainment. In their efforts to promote nature appreciation, they reveal much about how our culture envisions the natural world and the human place in it and how ideas have changed.
"Elizabeth Hanson`s Animal Attractions is much more than a history of zoological parks, it is rather a phenomenology of zoos and zoo people."- Terry Maple, Director, Zoo Atlanta
