About the Book

Secret Lives This book explores the fascinating and dangerous world of the American prostitute. Dr. Prince's landmark study in 1985 was the largest study on prostitution ever conducted with over 450 subjects. The requests for that study from law enforcement and social services agencies led to additional research since that time. This unique book is taken from hundreds of hours of interviews with call girls, street walkers, and brothel workers in California and Nevada. Told in the words of the women, themselves, the reader gets a glimpse into a profession that is usually shrouded in stereotypes and misinformation. The book provides a rare insight into these women and their world.
