An analysis of the conditions in which women are sustained within prostitution in Britain at the end of the millennium. Based on an empirical study, it is a glimpse into how some women, who live lives completely torn apart by poverty and violence, are able to understand their lives in prostitution.

Industry Reviews

'...tightly structured and clear...it is refreshing to find such a well-researched and well-written book that confronts and exposes both the good and the bad things about being a street prostitute in a big city at the millennium.' - The British Journal of Criminology 'A complex and sensitive portrait.' - American Journal of Sociology
