The author was appointed head of the womens section of the Polish Police Force, and served in that position until the outbreak of the Second World War. Her responsibilities included combating sexual exploitation, prostitution and juvenile deliquency, and this book is her account of that period. After the German invasion, Paleolog served in the Blue Police (the Polish police force that operated in German occupied Poland), and she came to Britain after the war where she was active in the Polish Government in exile, and where this book was published in the 1950's.

The condition of the book is generally ok. The covers have several minor scuffs and blemishes, and light wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and bound. The binding is beginning toi become exposed along the inside front cover.
