From the cover: A study of current problems in sexual ethics treated as part of an historical dialectical process. The interrelation between sexual questions and economic or political questions and the paramount importance of facing the former in a spirit of scientific and moral honesty is the main theme. The broad theoretical sweep of the book is supported throughout by the quotation of practical examples. The author is courageously outspoken on such subjects as divorce, police-courts, abortion, Russia, home-life, nursery schools, and sex education. Although there is much trenchant criticism of existing stupidity and hypocrisy, he is by no means uncritical of the new schools of sexual morality. The book is a complete and penetrating statement of the present position in the field of sexual morals.
