Summary
  • Jo Doezema argues that the current concern with trafficking in women is a modern manifestation of the myth of white slavery. Combining historical analysis with contemporary investigation, the text sheds light on the current preoccupations with trafficking in women
  • Why is the international community so concerned with the fate of prostitutes? And why does the story of trafficking sound so familiar? In this pioneering work, Jo Doezema argues that the current concern with trafficking in women is a modern manifestation of the myth of white slavery. --
  • Combining historical analysis with contemporary investigation, Sex Slaves and Discourse Masters examines in detail sex worker reactions to the myth of trafficking, questions the current feminist preoccupation with the s̀uffering female body' and argues that feminism needs to move towards the creation of new myths. --
  • The analysis in this book is controversial but crucial, an alternative to the current panic discourses around trafficking in women. --
  • Sex Slaves and Discourse Masters offers an analytically sophisticated and politically astute analysis of myth and ideology in the creation of sex trafficking as a social issue. Doezema's work is not only smart but also lively and engaging.' Wendy Chapkis, author of Live Sex Acts --
  • Èveryone who loves sex workers or who is horrified by prostitution, everyone interested in what prostitution "means", should read this book. Doezema's superlative analysis of inside information from sex workers and the UN illuminates the ways emotive cultural myths are compelling and how they are used.' Melissa Hope Ditmore, co-editor of Sex Work Matters --
  • Ìn this compelling analysis, Jo Doezema sheds new light on the meanings of the myth of "white slavery" and its contemporary, the trafficking of women. A must for any student or scholar of prostitution and human trafficking.' Kamala Kempadoo, professor of social science, York University, Canada --Book Jacket
