WITH: 5 pages of complimentary reviews of the Dutch edition in periodicals or by distinguished individuals. The reviews include statements that illuminate the text. a moral book, notwithstanding the fact that this morality has nothing in common with any morality as seen from a religious point of view; This book is so brave, the problems which up till the present people have been anxious to keep hidden, as skeletons in the cupboard. | And finally we point to the golden thread which goes as a theme through the book, the deliverance of women, from being an object of property to the independent human being which is the basis of the revolution in sexual life; A storm-raising book written by the social democrat the 'Grand Old Man' Dr. Wibaut and his wife deals with the problems of love, marriage, passion and child welfare.
