About this product
- DescriptionEmpirical and mathematically rigorous, this book provides a study of the ecomics of prostitution rather than focusing on the sociological and cultural themes. Using ecomic tools of analysis, internationally based editors have put together a theoretically informed volume that explores the supply and demand of prostitution. Prostitution is a globalized industry involving millions of workers and it is characterized by a high degree of inequality in working conditions (ranging from slavery to self-managed and legalized unionized employment), by different sub-markets and fully integrated in the productive system. Taking a provocative approach to prostitution, this book is a must read for students and researchers in the area of gender and ecomics.
