about this item

Trafficking of women for commercial sex is the fastest growing transnational criminal phenomenon.The Global Sex Trade looks at the reality behind this shocking fact, showing how this situation has come about and how it can be changed. In a distinctive and original analysis, Karie A. Gubbins shows the connections between the legalized sex industry and the illegal world of sex trafficking. ****** creates the demand and, increasingly, trafficking is a form of supply. The result is a mutually beneficial relationship between legal and illegal economies that has allowed the global sex trade to expand and move freely across borders in recent decades. The Global Sex Trade illuminates the economic and political forces involved in women's exploitation and outlines routes to sexual equality. It is a pioneering contribution which will spark debate among feminists and students in gender studies and sociology.
