Product description

Review

This imaginative and comprehensive introduction to the sex industry is as welcome as it is timely.... This is a rewarding and topical book that I would urge all interested parties to consult.


Graham Scambler, Professor of Medical Sociology
University College London


A remarkably thorough analysis of prostitution in contemporary society. Situating sex work at the intersection of economy, occupation, and emotion, the authors illuminate the complex forces that shape prostitution within an emerging global order. Bringing their analysis full circle, they close with a helpful exploration of the methods by which researchers are able to investigate an area of such danger and controversy. All in all, a courageous and important book.
Jeff Ferrell, Visiting Professor of Criminology
University of Kent, UK,
and
Professor of Sociology
Texas Christian University, USA.


This excellent text fills a gap in the market as it explores the full range of issues covering sex work, policy and politics....A fascinating and informative text which will become the leading handbook in this area.
Dr Louise Westmarland, Senior Lecturer in Criminology,
The Open University
