In this book the author, who is an ardent advocate of human sterilization as a means of controlling many of the social ills of our day, presents the history of this movement up to fairly recent times. He discusses the new German laws and describes the application of the law in those states of our own country which already have such legislation. His book fails, however, to recognize adequately many of the best arguments opposed to human sterilization. The book will serve, however, as a useful work for those who wish to make a beginning in their study of this problem.
