New Haven: Yale University Press, 2007. Octavo, dustwrapper, black and white illustrations.
Examines the shared history of people and bears. The book uncovers new and little-known stories and facts about bears in European, North American, Japanese, Russian, and South and Southeast Asian cultures. Taken together, these perspectives show us new things about the animals we thought we knew so well. Quirky and bizarre anecdotes, scientific information on bears threatened with extinction in some areas, a discussion of the phenomenon of 'bearanoia', and more than one hundred historical illustrations contribute to this unique account of the shared history between bears and humans and the continuing presence of bears in our personal and collective dreams. Also available in paperback [stock id 28150].
