Monster of God : The Man-Eating Predator in the Jungles of History and the Mind ebook
by David Quammen
Monster of God: The Man-E. has been added to your Cart. Quammen writes about the survivor, not humanity, but rather the man-eating predators. The true monster's of God are humanity and their destructive nature when in comes to the world around them. Great read nonetheless.
Monster of God: The Man-E. Depressing, but fascinating as well.
Another though-provoking idea that Quammen examines is the claim by Grahame Webb that conservation of alpha predators can only be accomplished by promoting teir economic viability. His example is the salt water crocodile. By allowing a certain quantity to be killed for their valuable leather, conservationists can motivate government protection.

Stephen Moss enjoys David Quammen's study of predators with a taste for human flesh, Monster of Go. Stephen Moss is a producer at the BBC Natural History Unit. His book on the social history of birdwatching, A Bird in the Bush, will be published in June by Aurum.
Quammen concedes that the word "man-eater" is sexist and sensationalistic. Citation: Kelly Enright. I wonder how experiences of women might have reframed some of Quammen's arguments. Some female-predator myths, in which women are kidnapped, seduced, or raped by predators, contrast with his story.
For millennia, lions, tigers, and their man-eating kin have kept our dark .
For millennia, lions, tigers, and their man-eating kin have kept our dark, scary forests dark and scary, and their predatory majesty has been the stuff of folklore. Their gradual disappearance is changing the very nature of our existence. We no longer occupy an intermediate position on the food chain; instead we survey it invulnerably from above-so far above that we are in danger of forgetting that we even belong to an ecosystem.
