The Historical Encyclopedia of Prostitution is a reference work about prostitution past and present, both worldwide (mostly in the West) and in the United States to be published by Greenwood Press. With approximately 600 entries on health, cultural issues, migration, boom towns, legislation, technology, literature, movies, and more, this three-volume encyclopedia promises to be a foremost resource devoted to this high-interest yet sensitive topic.
Entries related to history which remain unassigned include:
1959 Street Offenses Act (UK)
Brady, "Diamond" Jim
Coming of Age
Contagious Diseases Act
Hoover, J. Edgar
Indecent Exposure Laws
Institutionalization of Sex Workers
Masoch, Leopold von Sacher
Inquiries about other topics are welcome. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Guidelines for contributors and other information about this project is online at the website listed below.
