Prostitution In Victorian Colchester
Controlling The Uncontrollable
de Maria Rayner e Jane Pearson
Sobre o livro
Was life really nasty, brutish and short for Colchester's 19th-century prostitutes? Or was prostitution seen by some in authority as an acceptable way for women to boost inadequate earnings? This book explores the variety of routes into and out of prostitution, how authority in its many guises approached the moral and the practical issues involved.
