P Empirical and mathematically rigorous, this book provides a study of the economics of prostitution rather than focusing on the sociological and cultural themes. Using economic tools of analysis, internationally based editors have put together a theoretically informed volume that explores the supply and demand of prostitution. /P P Prostitution is a globalized industry involving millions of workers and it is characterized by a high degree of inequality in working conditions (ranging from slavery to self managed and legalised unionised employment), by different sub-markets and fully integrated in the productive system. /P P Taking a provocative approach to prostitution, this book is a must read for students and researchers in the area of gender and economics. /P
