Susanne Thorbek, Bandana Pattanaik
Bloomsbury Academic, 2002 - Social Science - 237 pages
Patterns of prostitution, like so much else in our increasingly inter-connected world, are changing radically, as the investigations in this volume dramatically show.

What emerges is a nuanced and empirically grounded portrait of the complexities of prostitution across national boundaries today.
