About the Author:

Kamala Kempadoo is Assistant Professor Women's Studies and Sociology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Jo Doezema is Project Officer at the Network of Sex Work Projects.

Review:

"These studies provide a wealth of information and data. The analytical chapters that precede and follow them are enlightening."
-"The Progressive
"A provocative collection of essays on prostitution, by scholars, journalists, and sex workers, with a focus on developing countries along with two essays on Japan....While the authors strongly condem forced labor, they contend that law enforcement should address the question of coercion, not sexual activity itself."
-"Foreign Affairs
"Few works have presented as well-rounded a view of prostitution as this volume."
-"Library Journal
"Frankly, I expected this book to be depressing, if informative; it turned out to be exhilarating and educational. The international group of scholars, activists, and sex workers whose voices Kempadoo and Doezema have brought together shows us women as victims and agents of resistance, colonized bodies, and defiant minds, rejecting all received cliches about prostitution, whether the source of the cliche be academic, imperial, or (even) feminist."
-Lillian S. Robinson, co-author "Night Market: Sexual Cultures and the Thai Economic Miracle
""Global Sex Workers is an important new work on the changing global politics of sex work that will shake up anyone used to thinking of women sex workers solely as victims."
-Elaine Bernard, Executive Director of the Harvard University Trade Union Program
