New York's poop scoop law; dogs, the dirt, and due process.


New York's poop scoop law; dogs, the dirt, and due process.

Brandow, Michael.

Purdue University Press


349 pages




Brandow, a noted New York journalist and essayist, discusses the first 30 years of New York City's "poop scoop" law, noting how it still stirs up arguments about sanitation standards, libertarianism and even anal retentive behavior. Using plenty of research culled from legal cases, the author examines the debate from both sides, eventually expanding his observations to broader issues of the ethics of pet ownership. Written for legal students, practitioners and general audiences, this book balances the comprehensive legal documentation with generous amounts of humor.
