The interconnections between humans and elephants in South Asia are remarkably complex both naturally and culturally, yet our understandings are typically framed in terms of animal ecologies or human histories. This tends to produce understandings that sideline one or the other species. In this book, however, social scientists, natural scientists, and humanities scholars come together to develop an integrated approach to understanding the often-problematic ways that humans and elephants exist together and influence each other.
