Children and Animals: Exploring the Roots of Kindness and Cruelty
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 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.
