What if you want to explore all sorts of interesting subjects and experiences without necessarily having a single book to absorb them into some kind of narrative? There are a number of approaches to this. The author of The Elephant and the Cobra (2007), for example, is an ethnologist. The authors of The Elephant and the Cobra are both ethnobiologists, with their own special emphasis on the different aspects of Africa, in particular on the elephant. For one thing, while there’s a great deal of evidence that elephant poaching has gone down in the past few decades, the way it is represented in the media, and even in the stories of other species, has been systematically suppressed. To me, The Elephant and the Cobra focuses squarely on the elephant’s contribution to history: that elephant’s survival and function as a resource. The book also explores some of the themes that make elephants such a valuable resource – how to understand their role in modern agriculture, hunting, and cultural practices.

In an earlier work, David E. Mertens also made use of historical documentation and anecdotal evidence to show how the African elephant had had many important impacts on the African world. The author of The Elephant & the Cobra, Peter Voisane, is an anthropologist working on African elephant habitat ecology. His research has produced important research that has led to new insights into how populations function in African parks and forest fires.
