Prostitution in Europe


The second volume in the series published for the Bureau of Social Hygiene by The Century Co.

Mr. Flexner's book is not only an authoritative presentation of European conditions and experiences touching prostitution-based upon several months' careful investigation in all the large European cities-it is also a philosophical discussion of European life. He deals largely, and without bias, with such phases of the problem as the extent and value of sex education, police regulation, segregation, medical examination, voluntary treatment through dispensaries, etc., clearing up much widespread misapprehension which prevails as to the policies pursued by European cities and their results.

Introduction by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Chairman of the Bureau of Social Hygiene. Ten graphs and index. Octavo, 455 pages. Price $1.30 net, postage 12 cents
