Product description

Review

"Weitzer, criminologist and professor of sociology at George Washington University, provides an erudite overview of sex work and detailed case studies of three cities with red-light districts: Antwerp, Belgium; Frankfurt, Germany; and Amsterdam, the Netherlands." -Publishers Weekly

"One of the more intelligent, measured and comprehensive looks at alternatives to criminalizing the trade."-Salon

"The book is well balanced and includes discussions the author has had with many different authorities, with prostitutes, brothel owners and the police (to name a few). Weitzer also does a good job describing the surroundings that he sees and the book makes for an interesting read....The book...would make for great discussions concerning whether or not prostitution (in its various forms) should be illegal, legal, or decriminalized." -Elin Weiss, Metapsychology

"[This book] offers an authoritative and scholarly glance into the subject of prostitution. Weitzer manages to address the politics of prostitution without delving deep enough into the morality of the issue to confuse the subject... I recommend it to anyone interested in the topic of sex work as well as those interested in land use planning concepts."-Urban Times

"Thorough and perceptive study."-Springer

"While there are other recent books on prostitution policy, Weitzer's book combines cogent ideas with interesting original research material... Verdict: A valuable book for criminal justice policymakers and for serious students of prostitution and crime."-Library Journal
