Animal abuse has been an acknowledged problem for centuries, but only within the past few decades has scientific research provided evidence that the maltreatment of animals often overlaps with violence toward people. The perpetrators of such inhumane treatment are often children and adolescents. This book presents current wisdom about the relationship between the maltreatment of animals and violence directed toward other human beings. The author, a noted expert in these areas, writes in a style and presents the findings in a language that will be understandable to parents and teachers.
