Colin Dayan on ‘pariah dogs’

This is some heavy reading – especially if you love dogs – but Colin Dayan, author of this season’s The Law is a White Dog: How Legal Rituals Make and Unmake Persons isn’t afraid to explore the often unpleasant treatment of  canines in literature and society.  Check out her latest piece in the July/August issue of The Boston Review for a preview of what you’ll find in her engrossing and disturbing book.
