' ... is a rich addition to the field'. Times Higher Education Supplement '... a brave attempt to illustrate the evolution of a complex phenomenon through the personal experience of prostitutes and clients alike.' Lars Peter Laamann, IHR Reviews in History 'Prostitution and Sexuality in Shanghai substantially adds to our understanding of the history of pre-1949 Chinese urban history, but also offers rich material for continuing comparative analysis of the history of the sex trade.' History 'Each chapter is carefully crafted and may stand by itself but, at the same time, also merges into a flowing narrative that gradually pieces together a colourful and complex mosaic where the many facets of prostitution are scrutinized ... this is an outstanding research effort based on an impressive array of sources which constitutes a solidly constructed reference work for scholars as well as general readers.'
