The Connection between Animal Abuse and Family Violence: A Selected Annotated Bibliography

By Sharon L. Nelson

Category Reports
Abstract

This selected annotated bibliography assembles legal and social literature that examines the link between domestic violence and animal abuse. Drawing from an ever-growing body of written works dedicated to the issue, the bibliography presents the works that are most informative and useful to the legal community. These include case studies, current and proposed legislation, and social services guides that address the ocurrence of and response to the animal cruelty-family violence correlation. In doing so, the bibliography creates a resource that will prove helpful to a variety of legal practitioners, lawmakers, and professionals within the criminal justice system, and will serve as a tool to promote further understanding of the patterns of abuse that often concurrently victimize both humans and animals.
