Courtesans' arts have shaped cultures through art for millenia, even though their arts have been frequently lost. This interdisciplinary collection explores courtesan cultures in ancient Greece, renaissance Italy, East Asia, and the Indian sub-continent, past and present, to show hoe the arts have figured in the courtesan's survival and demise.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] stimulating book...fascinating... The eighteen essays included in this thought-provoking volume demonstrate that multiple approaches to the creative arts of courtesans can do much to enrich our understanding of the central issues: gender, sexuality, musicality, and textuality... The contributors, editors and publisher should be complimented on their leading-edge achievement. * Donna G. Cardamone, University of Minnesota *
...complete with a thoughtful editorial introduction and a disk with seventeen songs... A great deal of research and analysis...along with the dedication needed to edit conference proceedings, has given us a volume that encourages further comparisons and a search for parallels and analogues. * Sixteenth Century Journal *
