Краткое описание

Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks.

Taking us way beyond the entertainments of the Discovery Channel's Shark Week, Washington Post environmental reporter Juliet Eilperin explores the world of the shark and its ancient and ongoing relationship with humans. She observes traders huddled around a pile of dried shark fins in Hong Kong, a Papua New Guinean elder who summons a shark with magic, and a scientist who finds a rare shark in Indonesia and forges a deal with villagers to help its species survive. From movie stars and professional athletes who go shark hunting in Miami to surfers tolerating sharks off Cape Town, and ecotourists swimming with sharks in the Yucatán, Eilperin reveals how different individuals and cultures relate to the ocean's top predator."For this inclusive and important book, Eilperin traveled around the world to find people who study, fish for, dive with, venerate, or have been attacked by sharks ... [and she] discusses many others who have brought sharks into human consciousness—Jules Verne, Edgar Allan Poe, Ernest Hemingway, and Jacques Cousteau; to this list, we must now add Eilperin herself."—American Scholar
