"Dr. Ascione's work, along with that of many of the contributors to this anthology, examines and clearly articulates the various forms of human and animal interaction. He has introduced a second generation of research into the entire question of animal abuse. Dr. Ascione and his collaborators from around the world in the mental and physical health disciplines, veterinary science, social work, and criminal justice are bringing into clearer focus the multiple causes and implications of animal abuse. Most important, they are doing this in a way that has meaningful applications to clinicians as well as to law enforcement officers." - Anthony J. Pinizzotto, Ph.D., Senior Scientist / Forensic Psychologist, FBI, Behavioral Science Unit, Quantico, VA.
