Marie Stopes was a very active British eugenicist in early 20th Century Britain. She was so devoted to her cause that she disowned her son when he married a women with eyeglasses, due to a genetic condition. This is her first published work outside of her primary field of paleobotany. It's an amusin

Remarkably open and up-to-date, written in very English upperclass but also scientific style. Shocking to read of totally sex-ignorant women who killed themselves, traumatized on their wedding night. Hilarious fact: all the tagged-on "editor's notes" were actually very outdated - "using condoms is b
