Summary

The Last Dinosaur Book The Life and Times of a Cultural Icon. W. J. T. Mitchell. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1998. 333 pp. $35. ISBN 0-226-53204-6.

This is not another book about dinosaurs, but an examination of dinosaurs in popular culture, past and present. Mitchell's enthusiastic, though sometimes superficial, study touches on dinosaur appearances in settings ranging from books to business, movies to museums, and television to toy stores.
