Sexual Behaviour in American Society: An Appraisal of the First Two Kinsey Reports. Edited by Jerome Himelhoch and Sylvia Fleis Fava. (New York: Norton, 1955. Pp. 446. $5.00.)

Review by:
E. Stengel

The Kinsey Reports, whatever their merits and faults, have made a tremendous impact on the lay public and a considerable impression on the experts. This book contains a selection of critical reviews of high standard from the methodological, sociological, psycho-analytical, psychiatric, anthropological, legal and religious points of view. Most of the thirty-eight articles had been published previously in various journals, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems deserves gratitude for presenting them together. The psycho-analytical standpoint is ably expressed by Kubie and Eisenbud. This book is indispensable for everybody who consults the Kinsey Reports.
