Book Description

This book gathers, in one place, those measures presently used to study the human-companion animal bond. The measures chosen for inclusion are the most heavily used by researchers, as well as measures that appear to be innovative or relate to the different aspects of the human-companion animal relationship. The measures cover the human-animal bond principally by attachment, but also by fear, abuse, or neglect.

Anderson, a retired librarian, continues to follow research in the field of human-animal studies and contributes a bibliographic column to the International Society for Anthrozoology." --Lisa Peacock, The Latham Letter
