"In this finely hued ethnography, Denise Brennan questions how transnationalization gets transacted, imagined, and experienced through an examination of the sex trade in a specific locale, Sosua in Dominican Republic. Interweaving the grand themes of political economy and power inequities with those of desire and fantasy--and from the sides of both (foreign) customer and (local) sex worker--she has crafted a richly textured study of a 'sexscape' and its brokering of dreams as much as of money and sex."--Anne Allison, author of "Nightwork: Sexuality, Pleasure, and Corporate Masculinity in a Tokyo Hostess Club"
Denise Brennan is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Georgetown University.
