Sample text

Although global warming has come to define the environmental crisis in the popular imagination, it is only one dimension of the problem. 20 Unlike each of the previous five mass extinctions (the most recent was approximately sixtyfive million years ago), this one appears to be driven mainly by human actions, concentrated in the modern age. 21 The Ueno Zoo became a theater of Anthropocene culture in Japan. 22 This representational shift echoes changes in international and domestic biodiversity even as it suggests that our notions of “modernity” must be far more attendant to ecological factors if they hope to capture the complexity of a global transformation that is at once social and environmental.

This book focuses on that transformation and its ramifications. It shows how managers and marketers created a vision of animals and nature and then put that vision to work, eventually themselves coming to believe that the new vision was, in actuality, a simple picture of “nature as it is” (shizen sono mono) rather than a highly mediated and carefully crafted depiction of the natural world. It was a vision that strove to be comprehensive, to claim for itself the symbolic power of a “real” nature—assumed to live outside the zoo—through the exhibition of living creatures.

Such plain facts, addressed to children and by extension their parents, were given political color in a variety of ways. “Tigers are ferocious like [our] soldiers in China,” added one 1940s flashcard, bringing masculinity and empire into the simple act of learning syllables. Through such means the cultural politics of ecological modernity arrived in youngsters’ lives before they ever visited the zoo. *I assume that human beings are animals, but I have chosen to maintain the distinction between “animals” and “humans” because it more clearly reflects the worldview of my subjects.
