Bound in leather and featuring an unintentionally scary clown on the cover, this book features explicit and disturbing behind-the- scenes imagery of traveling circuses from America's past. The vivid photos of human and animal rights abuses are difficult to look at, but act as harsh and necessary reminders of how violence as a spectacle hasn't evolved very far from the days of Roman gladiators.
