Conflict, Negotiation, and Coexistence

Rethinking Human-Elephant Relations in South Asia

Piers Locke and Jane Buckingham

  • It may be considered the first book on human-elephant relations that seeks to integrate the expertise of academics from the social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities (very inter-disciplinary).
  • The chapters in this book carry several policy implications, useful for government agencies and environmental activists concerned about environmental preservation in general and elephant welfare in particular.
  • It is a critique of anthropocentrism and explores the ethics of animal rights and multi-species ethnography.
