This is a wonderfully-detailed and well-referenced account of the history and sociology of and harm caused by the American practice of infant male genital mutilation. I'm buying a copy to have on hand as a reference. I only wish there was a newer edition, since this is twenty years old and some updates would probably be helpful.
