Sex trafficking : the global market in women and children
Carrington, Kerry (2006) Sex trafficking : the global market in women and children. Contemporary Sociology, 35(2), pp. 175-177.
This book is one of a series on contemporary
social issues. It provides a painstakingly
researched analysis of the contemporary phenomenon
of sex trafficking. As the author
Kathryn Farr points out, the phenomenon is
not all that contemporary, as women and children have historically been trafficked and
enslaved for the purposes of prostitution,
particularly during war: in World War II on
the southern islands of Okinawa, the
Philippines, Hawaii, Liberia, Japan, the
Korean war, the Vietnam war, and more
recently in Bosnia and Rwanda. Farr links the
phenomenon to military socialization, especially
to its patriarchal culture which celebrates
hyper-masculinity, eroticizes violence,
desensitizes soldiers to suffering and brutality
and treats women as sex objects.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
