This book, intended more particularly for the public, is significant both as a message and a sign. As a message it brings to the people the mature thought of one of the ablest members of the medical profession on a subject of fundamental importance to society. It gives an account of an actual experiment, a demonstration of natural and beneficent sex culture in a public school. It teaches, furthermore, what ought to be taught in families as well as in schools, namely that sexual disease in the individual is the unit of social disease in the race. From this starting point the book treats of means that the medical profession has already recognized and that the public is beginning to recognize as the only logical method of solving the great problem that lies at the foundation of social welfare. As a sign of the times the book is especially significant.
