Not quite what you'd expect, perhaps

This review is from: Unleashed Fury: The Political Struggle for Dog-friendly Parks (New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond) (Paperback)
This excellent* book addresses the conflict between the dog liberation front crowd and less self-indulgent citizenry at a very high level. The author uses the argument between people who dislike being bitten, etc and their tormenters to illustrate larger issues of public decision making and governance. It likely will exceed the intellectual reach of the average dog-addict. However, it may be helpful for those who would like to prepare themselves for the legal challenges necessary for re-establishing common-sense restrictions on canines and their mindless owners. We are lucky that there is no constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to let dogs run amuck, but such may come to pass if we are not vigilant.
For more immediate concerns, one may consult:
Handling the dog bit case, by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute
A Lawyer's guide to dangerous dog issues, by Joan Schaffner.
*"excellent" in the sense that it demonstrates what the pro-dog crowd may think advances their cause. Not, actually, "excellent" in the sense that it makes sense in the context of a civil society.
