This volume is a symposium presented largely by advanced thinkers on the subject of women. The writing is interesting and thought provoking throughout. From personal experiences, many readers will find much on which they differ with those who write. Of particular interest to the physician is part two, which deals with psychology and pathology of the sexes, including particularly the articles entitled "What the Clinic Reveals," by Carrie Weaver Smith; "The Emotional Life of Modern Women," by G. V. Hamilton; "Woman's Sexual Nature," by Havelock Ellis, and "The Struggle Against Childbearing," by Herbert Aptekar. Other parts of the book deal with women through the ages, the new woman, and problems and projects. The book includes twenty-eight essays and an introduction, concluding with biographic outlines of the lives of the contributors.
