Rethinking A Medical and Cultural TraditionBook - 1998
Circumcision has been practised for thousands of years, rationalized by relegion, medical theory and sexual repression. This work debunks the medical reasons for infant circumcision and places them in their cultural and historical context. The author explores the sexual and psychological consequences of circumcision. He provides a world view on the cultural and personal impact circumcision has on men and boys, while highlighting the possibilities for healing.
