PREVENTION OF VENEREAL DISEASE By SIR ARCHDALL REID, K.B.E., M.B. With an Introduction by SIR BRYAN DONKIN, M.D. Crown 8vo. 447 pages. 15s. net. Weight 2 lbs. Inland postage, 9d. This book is addressed on the one hand to those who would prevent venereal disease in themselves, and on the other, to those who would prevent it in the community. Lancet. "A powerfully written and valuable volume." The Medical Press. "We positively assert that it is the duty of every medical man to master its contents." LONDON: WM. HEINEMANN (Medical Books) Ltd.

The French Government has bestowed the premier decoration for women, The Reconnaissance Française, upon Miss Ettie Rout, of the New Zealand Volunteer Sisters, "for work done during the war (as head of Anzac Soldiers' Club in Paris), and in 1919 1920 as head of American Red Cross Depôt and Canteen at Villers Bretonneux, where she helped a great many French soldiers, and rendered precious service to the civilian population of the commune."

Her superhuman energy and indomitable perseverance enabled her to perform, in the most efficient manner possible, a work which few women would care to handle, and of which but an infinitesimally small number are capable. The French Government fully recognised the great services she rendered to the Allies, and did her honour. The book she has written is one of very great value, in that its object is the Health, Happiness, Morality and Well being of the Community.

Not only has Miss Ettie Rout the qualities that characterise all great humanitarians, but she also possesses, in a unique degree, an intimate knowledge of the terrible troubles that arise from irregular intercourse, and of the manner in which they can be reduced and perhaps eliminated.

In this book she deals with such simple hygienic measures as are little known in England, though they are in common use in France and in the United States, in both of which countries sound practical common sense prevails... Continue reading book >>
