Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 272 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.In an era of overseas exploration and imperial expansion, exotic animals were among the many foreign commodities to appear on British soil. They were a source of fascination to people across the social spectrum and served simultaneously as objects of entertainment, enlightenment and reflection. Focusing on zoos and travelling menageries in the period 1800-1880, Exhibiting Animals in Nineteenth-Century Britain explores how contemporaries thought about rare animals, where they encountered them and what symbolic, pedagogic and scientific value they attached to them. Helen Cowie uses animal exhibitions as a vehicle through which to examine issues of race, class, gender and colonialism. She devotes particular attention to travelling menageries, whose appeal transcended social boundaries and whose star exhibits included female lion tamers, ravenous hyenas and pistol-firing elephants. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137384430
