Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this lively, hard-hitting feminist study of prostitution, Lorraine Nencel interrogates the ways in which sexuality, gender and illicit behaviour have been constructed (and deconstructed) over the years. This is a richly detailed ethnographic account that interweaves narrative with theory. Nencel deals with issues such as AIDS, machismo and the regulation of the sex trade. She analyses the question of whether sex workers are victims or agents of control. In challenging conventional approaches to the study of sex workers and prostitution, Nencel has produced an original and provocative new study that is likely to provoke further discussion and debate.

Synopsis:

A lively, hard-hitting feminist study of prostitution within the third world.

Synopsis:

A rethinking of popular political movements, this book looks at new, emerging, mass visions and analyses their impact and potential in new ways.
