Contained in these pages of photographs -many of them shoching- taken over 20 years, is evidence that we must begin at once to reverse the complex origins of our apathy. Here we find ‘the elephants graveyard’ and a mandate to try to rearrange our own fate this side of the politics of sentimantality and anthropomorphism …” Dr. Norman E.Borlaug
