It's an essential guide for anyone intrigued by how sex work is moving beyond the margins and into the center of the public square.' - Melissa Gira Grant, columnist, $pread magazine,, 'This book makes a major contribution to understanding the everyday lives, experiences and perspectives of sex workers. It offers a rich body of evidence that shatters the myths that have gained purchase in policy debates in the UK and elsewhere. It should be essential reading for everyone working in this field - academics, practitioners and policy makers alike.' - Andrea Cornwall, editor, Development with a Body "A timely collection.
