Exposing the 'Pretty Woman' Myth - A Qualitative Investigation of Street-Level Prostituted Women (Paperback):... Exposing the 'Pretty Woman' Myth - A Qualitative Investigation of Street-Level Prostituted Women (Paperback)
Rochelle L. Dalla
R725 Discovery Miles 7 250 Out of stock

Exposing the 'Pretty Woman' Myth presents the lived experiences of women who prostitute themselves on the streets. It is based on research conducted with prostituted women over a six-year period. Author Rochelle Dalla presents case-history analyses of the women participants and opens a window into the world of street-level prostitution. This informative and engrossing book allows for the women's voices to be heard and their stories to be told. Importantly, this is not a book about sex and prostitution, per se. This is a book about prostitutedwomen. It is about the lives and relationships and pivotal occurrences in the developmental trajectories of vulnerable female populations. The women's involvement in street-level sex-work is important, but it is only one segment in the entire spectrum of their lived experiences. Within these pages, Dalla presents the entire spectrum giving the women's lives context and texture, including and beyond prostitution.

This book is part of a two-volume set that examines prostitution and sex trafficking on a global scale, with each chapter devoted to a particular country in one of seven geo-cultural areas of the world. The 16 chapters in this volume (Volume II) are devoted to examination of the commercial sex industry (CSI) in countries within Africa, Asia, Middle East, and Oceania, while the 18 chapters comprising Volume I focus exclusively on Europe, Latin America, and North America. This volume also includes a "global" section, which includes chapters that are globally relevant -- rather than those devoted to a particular country or geographic location. The content of each Volume, as well as each chapter, reflects great diversity -- diversity in focus, writing style, and personal position regarding the commercial sex industry. Diversity extends to the contributors, who are comprised of international scholars, service providers, and policy advocates representing a variety of fields and disciplines, with distinct and varied frames of reference and theoretical underpinnings with regard to the commercial sex industry. In addition to addressing aspects of the CSI across the globe, as impacted by geography and culture, authors have also provided a spectrum of implications of their work -- implications ranging from continued scholarship and research, to legislative maneuvers and policy change, to suggestions for collaboration across NGOS, fieldworkers, clinicians, and service providers. Together, the 34 expertly-crafted chapters provide a wealth of knowledge from which to more deeply appreciate and contemplate the global commercial sex industry. By uniting contributors from around the world, this book aims to build a relatively common knowledge base on global prostitution and sex trafficking. Viewed from a unified, global perspective, it is hoped that this common understanding will lead to a grounded theory and integrated view with applicable suggestions for international efforts aimed at interventio

Immigration to America is an issue that often sparks intense emotional reactions_from passion and compassion to anger and even rage. Often missing from the dialogue, however, is discussion of the strengths of immigrant newcomers_the abilities and positive characteristics they bring as individuals and families to our country, and how these contribute to the agency, growth, and vitality of America. This book was intended to move the discussion of immigration, generally speaking, and of immigrant families specifically, to include how and in what ways new immigrants to America (those arriving within the past thirty years) have changed the social and geocultural landscape of this country in positive, beneficial, and valuable ways. The book is comprised of nineteen chapters written by scholars with expertise on immigrant families representing every corner of the globe_from Africa and India to Europe and Central America. In each chapter, the unique factors, processes, and worldviews which help shape and mold the immigrant experience are articulated, as are the strengths immigrant newcomers bring to America.In addition, beyond explicating the strengths of immigrant families, each of the nineteen contributing chapters focuses on the implications of these strengths for families, communities, and the culture. Thus, the book provides a springboard from which to answer the application and 'what now' questions for those who work with immigrant families in a variety of capacities_from academicians and researchers to educators and human-service providers.

Routledge International Handbook of Human Trafficking - A Multi-Disciplinary and Applied Approach (Hardcover): Rochelle L. Dalla Routledge International Handbook of Human Trafficking - A Multi-Disciplinary and Applied Approach (Hardcover)
Rochelle L. Dalla

According to the UNODC (2015), human trafficking (HT) is the fastest growing means by which people are enslaved, the fastest growing international crime, and one of the largest sources of income for organized criminal networks. It profoundly impacts the physical and mental health of victims, their families, and entire communities and is recognized as a crime against humanity. Despite burgeoning interest, education, research, and advocacy efforts, a pinnacle handbook devoted to human trafficking and modern-day slavery-with global focus and multi-disciplinary scope-does not currently exist. The Routledge International Handbook of Human Trafficking was created to fill this resource gap. Divided into four sections, the Handbook offers the reader a comprehensive and fresh approach via: a) in-depth analyses and opportunities for application (through case studies, critical thinking questions, and supplemental learning materials); b) multi-disciplinary linkages, with disciplinary overlap across each of the four sections acknowledged and highlighted; c) content experts representing multiple segments of society (e.g. academia, government, foundation, law enforcement, and practice) and global vantage points (e.g., Australia, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, South Africa, Thailand, and the United States). Written by expert scholars, service providers, policy analysts, and health-care professionals, this Handbook is an invaluable resource for those already working in the field, as well as for students in any discipline who want to learn (or learn more) about HT and modern-day slavery.
