Women for Hire by Alain Corbin

Book Description

Depicts prostitution in 19th-century France not as a vice, crime, or disease, but as a well-organized business. This text reveals how the brothel served the sex industry in the same way that the factory served manufacturing: it provided an institution for the profitable sale of services.

Books By Author Alain Corbin

Life of an Unknown by Alain Corbin Life of an Unknown, Hardback (June 2001)

Corbin recreates the life and world of a man about whom nothing is known except for his entries in the civil registries and historical knowledge about the times in which he lived: Louis-Francois Pinagot, a forester and clog maker who lived during the heart of the nineteenth century -- the age of Romanticism, of Hugo and Berlioz -- from the Napoleonic Wars to the Third Republic.

Time, Desire and Horror by Alain Corbin Time, Desire and Horror, Hardback (October 1995)

In this book Alain Corbin argues that the 1860s were a crucial period for western civilization, characterized by radical changes in the way Europeans viewed themselves and their world.

Lure of the Sea by Alain Corbin Lure of the Sea, Paperback (May 1995)

This is an account of how the pleasures of the seaside were discovered in the Western World. This book argues that with few exceptions, people living before the 18th century knew nothing of the attractions of the coast. The sea was perceived as sinister and unchanging.
