About this book

Every year around the world 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls have part or all of their external sex organs cut off. Doctors, parents, and politicians have been misled into thinking that these mutilations are beneficial, necessary and harmless. International respected experts in the fields of medicine, science, politics, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history and religion present the latest research, documentation and analysis of this world-wide problem, focusing on the ethical, political and legal aspects of sexual mutilation; the cost and burden to healthcare systems; the latest medical research; anatomical and function consequences; religious and cultural aspects; psychological aspects; and the world-wide campaign to end sexual mutilation.

Reviews

`...altogether they present an excellent overview of the current debate on circumcision, especially for those who are not so familiar with the complexity of the scientific, legal, ethical and political aspects of circumcision.'
Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy, 4:1 (2001)
