The problem of prostitution, sex work or sex for sale can often be misunderstood, if we do not take into consideration its spatial, temporal and political context.

Understanding Sex for Sale aims to understand how prostitution, sex work or sex for sale are delineated, contested and understood in different spaces, places and times; with a particular focus on identifying how the relation between sex and money is interpreted and enacted. Divided into three parts, this interdisciplinary volume offers contributions that discuss ongoing theoretical issues and analytical challenges. Some chapters focus on how prostitution, sex work, or sex for sale have been regulated by the authorities and on the understandings that regulations are built upon. Other chapters investigate the experiences of sex workers and sex buyers, examining how these actors adjust to or resist the categorisation processes, control and stigma they are subjected to. Finally, a third group of chapters discuss contemporary definitional issues produced by various actors tasked with controlling prostitution or offering social services to its participants.

Advancing and placing analytical tools at the forefront of the discussion, Understanding Sex for Sale appeals to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as researchers interested in fields such as, sociology, anthropology, criminology, history, human geography and gender studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Digging under the common misperceptions that inform our unease with sex and money, Skilbrei and Spanger's collection rethinks scholarly theory and provides practical tools for policy makers, scholars and activists in addressing sex for sale

Barbara Brents, Professor of Sociology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA

This book is a must read. As a collection, it offers something unique, scholarly and very original. It shows the multiplicity of meanings, all contextually bound, ascribed to prostitution. Essential reading for scholars, campaigners, students and researchers.

Jo Phoenix, Professor in Criminology, Open University, UK
