Publisher Description

Sex trafficking: The global market in women and children. Kathryn Farr. 2005. New York: Worth Publishers. pp.262, ISBN:0-7167-5548-3, US $24.95 (Paperback). Sex trafficking has gained considerable media attention over the past few years. The purpose of this book, as stated by the author, is to "spread the word about the trafficking industry--its sources, operations and structures" (preface). The lens from which sex trafficking is perceived and understood in this book fits a radical feminist perspective; the notion that women's oppression is due to worldwide patriarchy. Farr states that her lens of viewing the sources of sex trafficking is "economic and patriarchal" (preface). She describes sex trafficking as a structured form of violence, and throughout this book presents its sources, operations and configurations. The book's main focus is to look at the process and the industry of sex trafficking from a radical feminist perspective.
