About this Item

Blue cloth; half-title torn and nearly detached, paper browned and brittle. Uncut and partially unopened. First published in 1912, Ellis' formidable work on social reform was written over a twenty-five year period. Ellis was an ardent champion of equal rights for women, and there are three full chapters on the subject, as well as additional chapters on eugenics, religion, sexual hygiene, immorality and the law, the problem of international language, and socialism. "The study of social hygiene means the study of those things which concern the welfare of human beings living in societies.If it were not the mission of social hygiene to bring a new joy and a new freedom into life I should not have concerned myself with the writing of this book.".
