Reaktion Animal Series. Part of an unusual series that looks at the subject animal and its place in human history. Bears have long wandered through the human imagination: from the Greek legend of Callisto to Winnie-the-Pooh, bears have throughout history been a rich source of imagery, myth, story and legend. Bear assesses the evolution, ecosystems and adaptions of the bear, as well as its depiction and construction in folklore and contemporary culture. Other titles in this animal series are available.
