History of Circumcision
A history of male and female circumcision originally published in 1900, the book is based on a long and personal observation of the changes made in man by circumcision. Dr. Remondino inquired into the moral, physical, and mental effects of circumcision in the three major religions. He goes beyond just discussing circumcision, by including all the mutilations practiced on the genitals as a contribution to the natural history of man. Over 26 chapters include antiquity of circumcision, theories as to the origin of circumcision, the spread of circumcision, the history of castration and eunuchism reasons for being circumcised, medical conditions and related surgery, and attempts to abolish circumcision.
