Abstract

An investigation of the changing nature, meaning and significance of prostitution over time. This book examines the changing issues, debates and campaigns that have surrounded the subject of prostitution at different points in history. The authors argue that the widely held contention that prostitution is the "oldest profession" has served to militate against a proper investigation of its changing nature, meaning and significance over time. In responce to this, this volume examines the many facets of prostitution looking in particular at its history, sociology, politics and regulation.
