The End of the Game is Peter Beard's first and most important book, a powerful account of the gradual and relentless destruction of East African wildlife. Widely regarded as a seminal work on conservation, it also serves as a moving tribute to the devastating impact of loss and the fragility of life. In his introduction, Beard writes: 'A book about Africa is necessarily a book about many things, and this one hopes to be precisely that; a memory of the past, a record of the present, and an image of the future… Fifty years ago men had to be protected from the beasts; today the beasts must somehow be protected from man.'
