I've just finished reading "The Pit Bull Placebo: The Media, Myths and Politics of Canine Aggression" which is a very well researched book looking into why Pitbulls and Pitbull types have got such a terrible reputation. It's all based on research done in the states and shows how the press has evolved from balanced reporting to complete farce is quite a short space of time.
Also, it turns out the first dogs to inspire fear in people (thanks to the press, myths and bad owners) were Bloodhounds then Newfoundlands.
A good read if you are interested in stuff like this, try to get a second hand copy though, it's a bit pricey.

I had a peek inside on Amazon last night - very interesting. I don't mind reading a PDF, would you mind if I got a copy too?
