This fascinating new book addresses the most recent research and provocative findings on the use of pets in mental health therapy. The historical basis of using pets in therapy is reviewed, and numerous examples are provided of results incurred from prescribing pets to disabled, lonely, incarcerated, and institutionalized individuals. The author provides convincing evidence of the therapeutic value of animals in making us happier, healthier, and more sociable.

Between Pets and People

Since the first edition of Between Pets and People in 1983, the authors' then-startling contention that pets benefit our mental and physical health has found wide acceptance. Evidence in our daily lives - in television pet food ads, in doctor's offices outfitted with aquaria - attests to how widely the belief in pets' therapeutic influence is now held. This revised edition of Between Pets and People, with additional data and case studies and expanded references - including a listing of Internet resources - and a foreword by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, analyzes the surprisingly complex relationships we have with our pets. This book contains an important lesson for everyone - to accept ourselves and others in the uncritical way that pets accept us, and come to terms with our own animal nature.

'When I play with my cat, who knows if I am not a pastime to her more than she is to me?' - Michel de Montaigne. Why do we live with pets? Is there something more to our relationship with them than simply companionship? What is it we look for in our pets and what does this say about us as human beings? In this fascinating book, Erica Fudge explores the nature of this most complex of relationships and the difficulties of knowing what it is that one is living with when one chooses to share a home with an animal. Fudge argues that our capacity for compassion and ability to live alongside others is evident in our relationships with our pets, those paradoxical creatures who give us a sense of com...

Joe Brown's Pets

"Civil War historians William R. Scaife and William Harris Bragg have not only written the first history of the Georgia Militia during the Civil War: they have produced the definitive account, taking into consideration the military, social, and political ramifications of the organization. Relying on an impressive array of original sources - many of them drawn from previously untapped materials in the Georgia Archives - the authors have told the story of "Joe Brown's Pets" with satisfying detail. Illustrated by an abundance of period photographs and engravings, as well as maps and plans, their account finally provides a much-needed history of one of the Civil War's most colorful and intriguing bodies of troops."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
