Modern Babylon?: Prostituting Children in Thailand

Modern Babylon?: Prostituting Children in Thailand (Paperback)

£19.00
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Child prostitution became one of the key concerns of the international community in the 1990s. World congresses were held, international and national laws were changed and concern over "commercially sexually exploited children" rose dramatically. Rarely, however, were the children who worked as prostitutes consulted or questioned in this process, and the voices of these children brought into focus. This book is the first to address the children directly, to examine their daily lives, their motivations and their perceptions of what they do. Based on 15 months of fieldwork in a Thai tourist community that survived through child prostitution, this book draws on anthropological theories on childhood and kinship to contextualise the experiences of this group of Thai child prostitutes and to contrast these with the stereotypes held of them by those outside their community.
