Wild Man from Borneo: A Cultural History of the Orangutan
Robert Cribb, Helen Gilbert & Helen Tiffin
The joint authors, academics in Asian history, theatre and postcolonial theory respectively, join forces to produce a sweeping history of the orangutan's place both in its natural habitat of Borneo and in the scientific, artistic and popular imagination. Often seen as human-like, the orangutan has suffered from over exploitation by visitors and loss of its natural habitat resulting in all three species of the animal being now considered to be critically endangered. New Paperback. 318 pages with a map, a bibliography, an index and several black and white illustrations.
