Prostitution, U.S./Japanese, in Pacific Rim Bibliography

Query From Jeanette Keith 17 April 1998

A friend is seeking information for a research project about Japanese women prostitutes in the Pacific Rim countries, including the US, and has asked that I ask the group for books on prostitution in the US as essential background reading.

*******Editor's Note: This is a very broad bibliographical questions, but perhaps H-Women subscribers can suggest the *most* significant books on prostitution and the U.S., as well as any work that has been done on Japanese prostitutes in the Pacific Rim. KL********
