Description - Transnational Prostitution by Susanne Thorbek

Patterns of prostitution are changing radically under the influence of Western affluence, deepening Third World poverty, cheap international travel, cultural shifts in attitudes to extra-marital sex, and the Internet. This global survey looks at all three sets of actors involved - the prostitutes themselves, their clients, and the pimps and international traffickers. It covers prime Third World sites such as Thailand, and the increasing numbers of both Third World and eastern European women being brought into prostitution in Europe, North America and Australia. The text documents the huge increase in prostitution overall, the scale of international trafficking, the impact of North/South historical and cultural factors, the variety of situations faced or created by prostitutes,and the innovative responses being pioneered in Canada, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
