Pressestimmen An NPR Best Book of 2016A Boston Globe Best Book of 2016“This is a very good book… Ms. Dickey has earned her reputation as a first-rate reporter.” —The Wall Street Journal'Terrific... [Dickey] does more than simply dispel the many myths around pit bulls; she strives to explore what those myths can tell us about ourselves. This beautifully written heartbreaking book is not just for dog lovers — it's for anyone interested in race class history and the complexity of media narratives.' —NPR'Ms. Dickey not only writes about the ebb and flow of public fear and loathing she takes the reader on a thoroughly comprehensible tour of genetics and behavioral science to explain why breeding never guarantees an individual dog’s personality and shouldn’t be used to condemn it.... Picking out one breed to blame is neither warranted nor effective and a reader of her book will be hard put to disagree.' —The New York Times“Brilliant… A powerful and disturbing book that shows how the rise of the killer-pit bull narrative reflects many broader American anxieties and pathologies surrounding race class and poverty… A remarkable study of our capacities for cruelty and compassion toward dogs and other humans and an eloquent argument for abandoning the fears and prejudices that have made pit bulls in particular the victims of mistreatment.” —Christian Science Monitor“Like the pit bull itself this book is sturdy complicated and resists easy categorization… As Dickey exhaustively demonstrates there is no ‘aggression gene’ and no such thing as a dangerous breed.” —The New York Times Book Review'In covering a subject that evokes strong deep-seated emotions Dickey herself refrains from making sweeping judgments about the pit-bull temperament. She neither condemns nor exalts these dogs. The story of the pit bull is complex and at times heartbreaking. It’s fraught with cruelty and poverty but also compassion generosity and occasionally clear-headed thinking. Somehow Dickey manages to find hope for the future of this dog and its reputation.' —LA Review of Books Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende BRONWEN DICKEY is an essayist and journalist who writes regularly for the Oxford American.
