Behind a confusing title, Dr. Roland's book concentrates on systemic ("oral") contraceptives—their development, rationale, use, and side-effects. He also considers intrauterine devices; mechanical (condom and diaphragm) and clinical (jelly and foam) barriers; rhythm; and withdrawal. He provides clear and practical guidance for the physician. The book by Rudel, Kincl, and Henzl is more wide-ranging and academic, with greater attention to investigative, legal, and ethical-moral matters. One chapter is given to abortion. The two books overlap, but they have so much content not in common that clinical libraries lacking current literature in this field could use both.
