Domestication has often seemed a matter of the distant past, a series of distinct events involving humans and other species that took place long ago. Today, as genetic manipulation continues to break new barriers in scientific and medical research, we appear to be entering an age of biological control. Are we also writing a new chapter in the history of domestication? Where the Wild Things Are Now explores the relevance of domestication for anthropologists and scholars in related fields who are concerned with understanding ongoing change in processes affecting humans as well as other species. From the pet food industry and its critics to salmon farming in Tasmania, the protection of endangered species in Vietnam and the pigeon fanciers who influenced Darwin, Where the Wild Things Are Now provides an urgently needed re-examination of the concept of domestication against the shifting background of relationships between humans, animals and plants.
An adorable keepsake for young children and fans of all ages of Where the Wild Things Are, one of the most highly acclaimed, award-winning and bestselling children's books of all time. Kit includes a mini plush figurine of Max, a removable paper crown to top off Max's costume, and 16-page book of stickers featuring full-color artwork from the original Maurice Sendak book.
Hidden India: A Journey to Where the Wild Things Are, is a breathtaking new project featuring over 300 photographs by one of India's foremost conservation ecologist and photographer, Latika Nath, and writing by journalist, essayist and environmentalist, Shloka Nath. The book showcases extraordinary images of landscapes and wildlife from across India, many of which are now critically endangered. It also features writing examining one of literature's most rewarding and enduring themes: Our relationship with Nature. It speaks of breathtaking vistas and mythical creatures. It is a testament to that which endures, to the wonder of life. The tigers that appear in the bushes when you least expect them, the birdsong of the peacock, the call of the Cheetal (spotted deer), the gush of wind through the trees, the enigmatic turtles in the blue waters of the Andamans, the serrated mountains of Ladakh--our planet contains more mystery, love, and beauty than the human heart can possibly hold. Life is after all, a journey to where the wild things are.
