Book Description Viking / Penguin 1998., 1998. Printed black boards, 205pp illustrated 8vo. Author's investigation into the 'canned' hunting industry in Southern Africa where lions are bred in captivity for the sole purpose of being killed under unnatural conditions by high-paying trophy 'hunters'. In doing so he exposes the myth of South Africa's conservation image and the sale of hunting as a necessary integral part of conservation. Trophy hunting is seen as a relic of the colonial past where 'conservation' means exploitation of wild animals and what remains of their habitat for profit. An African Renaissance must include a rebirth of environmentalism on the continent and a reforging of spiritual empathy for wild animals seeing a dismantling of colonial hunting policies.
