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.

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