This book in somewhat more abbreviated form was reviewed in The Journal Sept. 29, 1934. In the second edition it has been enlarged and revised. Eymer is substituted for Döderlein as author of the technical aspects of sterilization in women. Otherwise the authorship appears to be unchanged. The greater part of the revision since the first edition is in the introductory portion, dealing with the genetics of the diseases for which sterilization has been declared mandatory in Germany. There is also a much greater emphasis laid on the studies outside Germany and the development of sterilization laws in other countries. Thus, the laws relative to sterilization both of the United States and of Canada are discussed. No apparent change has been made in the laws as they exist in Germany since the first edition. The book contains a satisfactory glossary, and a bibliography that should be useful to any one
