About the book:

From the importance of elephants in ancient texts to the role of mahouts over centuries. From discussions on de-extinction to accounts of intimate companionship. The essays in this book reveal the various dynamics of the relationship between two intelligent social mammals. Eschewing such binaries as human and animal or nature and culture. The essays present elephants as subjective agents who think, feel, and emote.
