9780745317564: Travels in the Skin Trade: Tourism and the Sex Industry

This updated version of Jeremy Seabrook's highly acclaimed book Travels in the Skin Trade contains a new preface, highlighting the current issues surrounding sex tourism in Thailand. Press coverage of the sex trade routinely consists of ill-informed, moralising and sensationalist denunciations of the "industry". Through the words of sex workers and their clients, distinguished journalist and writer Seabrook reconsiders the popular conception of the sex industry and explores the complex relationship between sex and tourism. In so doing he presents an objective, unmoralizing and sensitive view of the industry. Through its examination of the many paradoxes surrounding this controversial subject, Travels in the Skin Trade also sheds new light on the wider and problematic relationship between the North and the South.

About the Author:

Mark B. Salter is Assistant Professor at The American University in Cairo. He is currently working on a history of the passport in world politics.

Review:

Praise for the first edition: ‘Jeremy Seabrook is one of England’s most imaginative and creative writers, with a preacher’s talent for prophesy and a capacity for righteous indignation reminiscent of George Orwell.’ --Richard Gott, The Guardian  'It raises questions about the rights of Thai women and children and the expectations of the men who travel to the country for this service. Finally it encourages a more wide-reaching understanding of basic human rights and considers the problematic relationship between North and South.' --Oxfam Review of Journals
