  • About the Edition

    Alison Bass weaves the true stories of sex workers with the latest research on prostitution into a gripping journalistic account of how women (and some men) navigate a culture that routinely accepts the implicit exchange of sex for money, status, or even a good meal, but imposes heavy penalties on those who make such bargains explicit. Along the way, Bass examines why an increasing number of middle-class white women choose to become sex workers and explores how prostitution has become a thriving industry in the twenty-first-century global economy. Situating her book in American history more broadly, she also discusses the impact of the sexual revolution, the rise of the Nevada brothels, and the growing war on sex trafficking after 9/11. Drawing on recent studies that show lower rates of violence and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, in regions where adult prostitution is legal and regulated, Bass makes a powerful case for decriminalizing sex work. Through comparisons of the impact of criminalization vs. decriminalization in other countries, her book offers strategies for making prostitution safer for American sex workers and the communities in which they dwell. This riveting assessment of how U.S. anti-prostitution laws harm the public health and safety of sex workers and other citizens - and affect larger societal attitudes toward women - will interest feminists, sociologists, lawyers, health-care professionals, and policy makers. The book also will appeal to anyone with an interest in American history and our society"s evolving attitudes toward sexuality and marriage.

      You didn't get screwed, it sounds like he was also doing work on it and, presumably, he edited your manuscript before passing it on to the boss. If it is any consolation, chances are this won't get accepted anywhere long past this admissions cycle unless it was just an outstanding idea (and in that case he probably does deserve to be first author). Ask a Mom: How does one not get screwed by the IRS? “I don’t think people get screwed by the IRS. I think people don’t understand how the IRS works, and I don’t think they understand their paycheck. When you’re an employee and someone says they’ll pay you $10,, you don’t get a check for that amount.

      Getting a book onto a publishing slate is hard work. However, if a publisher sits on a book for more than 18 months they never intend to publish it and you should be able to get the rights back. Finally, you want to make sure that no matter what all rights revert back to you after a specific time, hopefully within years.   Suzanne Burke and Steve Burke have worked together on a collaborative project to put together the ultimate home renovation book. In Nail Your Renovation without getting Screwed, award-winning builder and renovation specialist Steve Burke draws on over 20 years’ experience to provide a practical guide on the do’s and don’ts of home renovations.

    In Getting Screwed, Dr. Grant shows the readers how the game of politics is played. Among the many elements of political strategy discussed are: Know the Players: A good player will start each game by making a list of all of his opponents, making a special effort to spot any hidden opponents.
