The literature of Anglo-American law regarding animals is almost totally devoted to the pragmatic study of the nature and extent of ownership of animals and the rights and responsibilities arising therefrom. This narrow view of the bond between men and animals is eloquently expressed in the confident and innocent assertion of William Blackstone that "In the beginning of the world we are informed by holy writ, the all bountiful creator gave to man dominion over all the earth, and over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth. This is the only true and solid foundation of man's dominion over external things."

The following bibliography includes English language publications in the form of monographs and treatises.
