Gland: WAZA, 2012. Octavo, paperback, black and white illustrations and photographs.
Based on material from WAZA's extensive archives, this book traces the history and evolution of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) from 1935 to the present. This book tells the story of how the organisation has developed from a simple international network of zoo directors to a true force for wildlife conservation. This book is a landmark publication in that it brings previously buried archival information to life. It is a valuable contribution to the collection of publications that deal with zoos as a main focus as it gives a unique inside look into how principal members and institutions of the zoo community in the 20th century have helped shape zoos and aquariums into what they are today.
