Traditionally, research on prostitution has centred on the figure of the female sex worker, not the clients, the managers of sex businesses or those who live near the spaces where sex is bought and sold. Although research and literature has begun to explore prostitution from the standpoint of the community, this is the first book to address this issue exploring the nature, extent and visibility of prostitution in residential communities and business areas, considering the legal and social context in which it is situated, and the community responses of those who live and work in areas of prostitution. This book is a useful contribution for academics and researchers who wish to understand current policy initiatives in other local, national and international community settings, consider what communities think about the sex industry, how they have responded to it and what strategies they believe are best to deal with local concerns.
