MoreExcerpt from Michael: Brother of JerryI have seen the hearts and stamina of strong men broken, and I have seen other men, by ill-treatment, driven to permanent and howling madness.

I have witnessed the deaths Of old and young, and even infants, from sheer starvation. I have seen men and women beaten by whips and clubs and fists, and I have seen the rhinoceros-hide whips laid around the naked torsos of black boys so heartily that each stroke stripped away the skin in full circle. And yet, let me add finally, never have I been so appalled and shocked by the worlds cruelty as have I been appalled and shocked in the midst of happy, laugh ing, and applauding audiences when trained-animal turns were being performed on the stage.One with a strong stomach and a hard head may be able to tolerate much of the unconscious and undeliberate cruelty and torture of the world that is perpetrated in hot blood and stupidity.

I have such a stomach and head. But what turns my head and makes my gorge rise, is the cold-blooded, con scious, deliberate cruelty and torment that is manifest behind ninety-nine of every hundred trained-animal turns. Cruelty, as a fine art, has attained its perfect flower in the trained-animal world.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
