Overview

Attitudes toward prostitution have shifted substantially in the past few years, with arguments changing from moral issues to social issues to simply health issues. However Scott (sociology, U. of New England, Australia) notes that one theme that remains strong and unchanging is power, in particular the power of the state over women's minds and bodies. He examines the histories of prostitution in New South Wales and their different takes on power and truth, the role of "other" in the shift in attitude, the idea of applying private remedies to public concerns, the emergence and complication of the male prostitute, and the shift from procreation to pleasure inherent in the business. Scott closes with an analysis of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the debate over prostitution. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
