More About This Textbook

Overview

Far from a conventional "dog book," American Pitbull is a nonfiction pictorial narrative of a deep culture: American pitbull dogs and the human beings that live for them. Over a three-year period Marc Joseph traveled the United States photographing pitbull dogs, their owners, breeders and "old time dog men," at their homes and yards, and during events related to the breed. Joseph gained full access to this culture via the bonds formed with his subjects, and the fanatical, almost-religious devotion that pitbull fans attribute to the breed is clearly portrayed in his pictures. Issues of identity are addressed through elements of image, race, pride and background, while the photographs simultaneously serve to further an understanding of our perceptions of beauty, unconditional love, danger and strength. Rich with metaphor, themes of family and shelter are prominent; throughout the series a cast of characters emerges, defining the context of the work. Writer James Frey, (A Million Little Pieces) contributes the highly informative and very personal essay to American Pitbull. Exhibitions of the works shown here will be mounted throughout the United States and Europe in 2005 and 2006. The documentary film, American Pitbull, based on this book, is currently in production.

    True Pit Bull Lovers will hate this book

    I'm the owner of two pit bulls and am always trying to dispel the myths about the breed. I bought this book thinking it would add to my knowledge base and that it would be entertaining. I was disgusted to find all it did was perpetuate the idea that only thugs and rednecks own Pit Bulls. There were a few pictures of children with their dog but all the rest were of people trying to make their dog look fierce and there were photos of "rape stands" (a female dog is tied to it and has her mouth muzzled so she can be mated) and of the mating taking place. I was so disappointed I returned this book the next day and decided I would discourage anyone who truly loves or wants to learn more about the breed to buy this book.

    Touching

    I bought this book because I knew it contained an essay by James Frey. I admit my bias because everything he does in my eyes is so far from the surface. I admit that every time I buy another one of his works I am skeptical that nothing he could express could be more profound than the last. I seem to never be disappointed.
