Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Including the latest research on prostitution and pornography, this essay anthology shows how the sex industries harm those within them while undermining the possibilities for gender justice, human equality, and stable sexual relationships. From sex industries survivors to social activists and theorists such as Taylor Lee, Adriene Sere, and Kristen Anderberg, this volume asses from a feminist perspective the racism, poverty, militarism, and corporate capitalism of selling sex through strip clubs, brothels, mail-order brides, and child pornography.

About the Author

"Loving and militant, practical and prophetic, this book collects the least compromised writing on a most crucial problem of our time—even the bottom line issue of all time."  —Catharine A. MacKinnon, Elizabeth A. Long Professor of Law, University of Michigan
"As this brilliant and timely collection makes clear, men who respect and value women—not to mention social justice and human rights—must not avert our eyes from the sexual exploitation of women and children all around us."  —Jackson Katz, cofounder, Mentors in Violence Prevention
"The range and quality of the articles makes Not For Sale a must read for anyone seeking to understand the opposition to prostitution."  —NWSA Journal
