Prostitution, Politics and Policy by Roger Matthews

Book Description

Prostitution has become an extremely topical issue in recent years and attention has focused both on the situation of female prostitutes and the adequacy of existing forms of regulation. Prostitution, Politics & Policy brings together the main debates and issues associated with prostitution in order to examine the range of policy options that are available. Governments in different parts of the world have been struggling to develop constructive policies to deal with prostitution - as, for example, the British Home Office recently instigated a GBP1.5 million programme to help address the perceived problems of prostitution. In the context of this struggle, and amidst the publication of various policy documents, Prostitution, Politics & Policy develops a fresh approach to understanding this issue, while presenting a range of what are seen as progressive and radical policy proposals. Much of the debate around prostitution has been polarized between liberals - who want prostitution decriminalized, normalized and humanized - and conservatives - who have argued that prostitution should be abolished. But, drawing on a wide range of international literature, and providing an overview that is both accessible to students and relevant to policy makers and practitioners, Roger Matthews proposes a form of radical realism that is irreducible to either of these two positions.

Exiting Prostitution by Roger Matthews Exiting Prostitution, Hardback (September 2014)

How people move from deviant to conventional lifestyles is an issue that has attracted considerable interest over the past few years. However, much of this work has focused on men desisting from crime. This book provides one of the first examinations of desistance which is centred on women and, more specifically, how they exit prostitution.

Realist Criminology by Roger Matthews Realist Criminology, Hardback (August 2014)

This book challenges contemporary criminological thinking, providing a thorough critique of mainstream criminology, including both liberal criminology and administrative criminology. It sets a new agenda for theoretical and practical engagement, and for creating a more effective and just criminal justice system.

Doing Time by Roger Matthews Doing Time, Paperback (August 2009)

This revised and updated edition brings a widely-recognized text up to date to provide an accessible and informed discussion of current debates on prisons and penal policy. Taking a global view, Doing Time is an invaluable critical sociological analysis of imprisonment.
