Summary:"Making Work, Making Trouble has long been the pre-eminent study of
prostitution in Canada. This second edition has been thoroughly
updated to include events that have occurred in the decade since it
was originally published. Detailing the various forces that have
presented prostitution as a social problem, Deborah R. Brock examines
anti-prostitution campaigns, urban development, new policing
strategies, and the responses of the media, the courts, and
governments, as well as feminist, rights, and residents'
organizations." "Paying particular attention to rights and the means
of economic survival within global and local realities, this edition
includes new material outlining recent discourse on sex trafficking,
migrant sex work, and sex-worker rights organizing and considers the
potential impact of the Robert Picton trial on the practice of sex
work. Making Work, Making Trouble is a comprehensive overview of the
crucial debates on prostitution."--BOOK JACKET.
Notes:1st ed. had subtitle: prostitution as a social problem.
