Summary
The huge rise in poaching and ivory smuggling in the new millennium has destroyed the hope that the 1989 ivory trade ban would lead to a long-term fall in demand. This new examination of the history and politics of ivory in Africa forensically examines why poaching happens in Africa and why it is corruption, crime and politics, rather than insurgency, that we should worry about
