Inhaltsangabe: Many commentators have attempted to analyze and explain the nature of prostitution. However this is the first textbook to offer a complete overview of the way it operates within contemporary society, its characteristics, organizational structures, and cultural contexts. The book also explores how criminal, social, and health policies have sought to regulate and control the selling of sex. Written by leading experts with over 20 years′ experience in researching and teaching on the field, this is a must for all criminology, criminal justice, and sociology students taking modules in sex industry and prostitution studies.
About the Author:
After gaining a D.Phil from Oxford University, I took up a post at the School in 2003. Before coming to Leeds, I was a social worker in child protection. My research interests have largely focused on various aspects of the British sex industry, represented in two monographs and a textbook. I continue links with grassroots organisations where the crossroads of research output and change lies.
