In recent decades, scientific research has provided evidence that the maltreatment of animals often overlaps with violence toward people. Violence, including bullying, schoolyard assaults, child abuse in homes and intimate partner violence are often intertwined with animal cruelty. This book presents current scientific and professional wisdom about the relation between the maltreatment of animals and interpersonal violence in an understandable style and language.
