The book referred to is A Surgical Temptation: The Demonization of the Foreskin and the Rise of Circumcision in Britain by Robert Darcy is EXCELLENT. It is a history of (as it says) circumcision in Britain, but also a history of attitudes toward masturbation and male sexuality, as well as a history of medical ideas of the causes of disease and of urology. It is superbly detailed in its documentation, more academic than casual reading, but to me absolutely fascinating. Of course, I have always loved learning about the history of medicine, but even if you don't fall in that category, but care about ending circumcision, please read this book. It is very enlightening and puts a lot of what is going on today in perspective.
