Microbes and Morals
Rosebury
1971

This dense text is written for young people. I was surprised on how this book was more a history of sexually transmitted disease, along with a pretty thorough discussion of the science rather than a moral lecture. Throughout the book, the writer is constantly reminding the reader that disease is less about morals and more about disease and treatment. Not a bad book for the time.

I did find this title in a small-medium public library with the health books. My advice to the holding library: it is time to let this one go and get a current book that uses the term STD. I think only the over 50 crowd would know that this was a book about an STD.
