Making Work, Making Trouble

Prostitution as A Social Problem

eBook - 1998
Rate this:
"Deborah Brock examines how prostitution in Canada has been produced as a social problem. Contending that 'social problems do not exist objectively, ' Brock interprets the role of various actors in mounting the urban sex-trade spectacle: the media, feminist organizations, rights advocates, residents' groups, and state agents and agencies such as the police, politicians, the courts, and government commissions." "Making Work, Making Trouble is the first critical survey of prostitution in Canada. It provides much needed context to all groups enmeshed in the melee over territory and rights and should become a standard source in Canadian criminology."--Jacket.
