Sex education, like other controversial issues, has generated a great deal of polemical writing, much of which is likely to leave the interested reader both confused and factually under-informed. In this 1974 publication, Sex Education, Rex Rogers adopted a fresh and helpful approach - a book of readings with a distinct empirical flavour. Deliberate emphasis is given to studies that provide data on the utilisation, justification and effects of sex education in the belief that such knowledge is essential for the intelligent approach to this subject. Although written with the needs of those researching or teaching in the field of sex education particularly in mind, this collection contains little beyond the grasp of the non-specialist.
