The hugely illuminating story of how a popular breed of dog became the most demonized and supposedly the most dangerous of dogs—and what role humans have played in the transformation. When Bronwen Dickey brought her new dog home, she saw no traces of the infamous viciousness in her affectionate, timid pit bull. Which made her wonder: How had the breed—beloved by Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller, and Hollywood’s “Little Rascals”—come to be known as a brutal fighter? Her search for answers takes her from nineteenth-century New York City dogfighting pits—the cruelty of which drew the attention of the recently formed ASPCA—to early twentieth‑century movie sets, where pit bulls cavorted with Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton; from the battlefields of Gettysburg and the Marne, where pit bulls earned presidential recognition, to desolate urban neighborhoods where the dogs were loved, prized—and sometimes brutalized. Whether through love or fear, hatred or devotion, humans are bound to the history of the pit bull. With unfailing thoughtfulness, compassion, and a firm grasp of scientific fact, Dickey offers us a clear-eyed portrait of this extraordinary breed, and an insightful view of Americans’ relationship with their dogs.

This book examines the ways in which the histories of racial violence, from slavery onwards, are manifest in representations of the body in twenty-first-century culture set in the US South. Christopher Lloyd focuses on corporeality in literature and film to detail the workings of cultural memory in the present. Drawing on the fields of Southern Studies, Memory Studies and Black Studies, the book also engages psychoanalysis, Animal Studies and posthumanism to revitalize questions of the racialized body. Lloyd traces corporeal legacies in the US South through novels by Jesmyn Ward, Kathryn Stockett and others, alongside film and television such as Beasts of the Southern Wild and The Walking Dead. In all, the book explores the ways in which bodies in contemporary southern culture bear the traces of racial regulation and injury.

Dennis Fish, the enfant terrible of polite British society, bursts back into our collective consciousness in this hilarious, laugh a minute romp. Following on from the award winning spoof biography, also available in this format :- America Loves Bill Bryson, Sex, Pornography and Lothario Dennis Fish, this second instalment of the award winning Dennis Fish Trilogy has our hero chancing his arm at an audacious tilt to become an elected member for Parliament at the upcoming General Election. Aided by Texan 'pit bull' Bubba Zendowski, a brutal and battle hardened America political campaigner, who is head hunted to lead his team, Dennis, an instant Anti-Propaganda 'man of the people' launches his election bid in no less a place than the own backyard of incumbent Prime Minister David Chameleon. To further complicate matters, reptilian- faced, UQUIP master of the dark arts, Neil Lefarge is also standing on the same ballot, in the same West Oxfordshire constituency of Withey. The campaign kicks off cordially enough, but quickly disintegrates into a childish and spiteful battle, splattered with mischief, intrigue, criminality and riotous belly laughs. Strap yourself in as Dennis sprinkles big dollops of his usual buffoonery into the mix, resulting in a rich soufflé of comedy gold that surely has never been surpassed in the murky world of British Politics. Can Dennis really be taken seriously as a would be politician ? Or will he be cruelly exposed by an establishment in fear of a popular public icon? Find out in this gem of a book that will grab your heart strings and reduce you to tears.....................of laughter.
