Will the world become a theme park? The corporate world has tried to theme-park the past (see colonial villages), and the future (see cyberpark moon space). Now that zoos are retro, corporate culture is theme-parking nature. This is an important, detailed, and smart book on what consumers want of nature and what Sea World can supply. Insightful understandings on every page about how orcas live their life as eagles in a parakeet cage vs. the real "nature out there." This is the serious version of Florida's funniest mystery novel, Native Tongue , by Carl Hiassen (1992, Fawcett Books), which deals with sea worlds run amuck.
