The book provides a basic understanding and history of ivory along with a discussion and photographs of its many uses. It argues that ivory collected from elephants that die of natural causes, are culled from authorised hunts, that come from archeological sites and are recycled should be allowed to move in international trade with the proceeds going to programs to end poaching.

Reviews:
