This was what I found at the preface, and I was blown away:
This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality , ethnicity and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.
HELLO??? YES!!! GOOD FOR THEM!!! That is all I have to say.... (well, that and that my kittens - all over the computer nao - are SOOOOOOO kyooooooooot.)
