Transnational Prostitution: Changing Patterns in a Global Context
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. The question of migrant prostitutes in the West may be much debated, but it is little researched. This collection makes a radical break with the current media focus on human trafficking and the old habit of simply blaming the victim. What emerges is a nuanced and empirically grounded portrait of the complexities of prostitution across national boundaries today.
