Summary

There has been considerable media comment with regard to AIDS and prostitution, morally and medically, and yet academically the concentration has been social epidemiological research on the prevalence of HIV/AIDS among prostitutes and the debates about legal issues. This volume draws on available literature as part of a wider under- taking to "rethink" prostitution in the 1990s.
