about this item

In a global and comparative history of female prostitution in cities around the world from 1600 to the present, historians and social scientists engage in the debate between many traditional representations of prostitution and sound empirical evidence since the last decades of the 20th century that call them into question. They consider a range of specific cities, Africa and the Middle East, the Americas, the Asia-Pacific, and thematic overviews. Among the topics are the paradoxes and contradictions of prostitution in Paris, sex work and migration: the case of Tel Aviv and Jaffa 1918-2010, sex work in Rio de Janeiro: police management without regulation, prostitution in Shanghai, and seeing beyond prostitution: agency and the organization of sex work. The 33 papers are from a May 2013 conference. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
