Editorial stories
Review
"Nencel writes from an explicitly feminist anthropology viewpoint, with the focal point much less on a regional-specific ethnography and extra on attempting to determine a suite of styles for "sex workers" regardless of frustration with the subjects' unwillingness to paintings towards the project's learn pursuits. discourses on "women-who-prostitute" are laid out....Because the writer is a post-modernist, she notes that the likely ethnographic sections are literally components of separate conversations from separate incidents, pieced jointly to weave her argument. Of normal curiosity for a variety of social scientists and upper-division undergraduate scholars and above." -- selection
