Book Dinomania: Why We Love, Fear and are Utterly Enchanted by Dinosaurs by Garry Marvin

“In this erudite, wide-ranging and engaged work, Boria Sax explorers the cultural flesh that has been wrapped around the fossilized bones of these iconic creatures. He asks, ‘What is a dinosaur?’ and shows that the answer is not merely a scientific one but is intimately linked to wider cultural trends and concerns. Extinct they might be, but Sax reveals how dinosaurs live on among us.”

Garry Marvin, Professor of Human and Animal Studies, University of Roehampton and author of Wolf.
