Susan Dewey draws on her field research in Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and India—where she spoke with actors ranging from bar workers in Bombay to US embassy employees in Armenia to senior officials at international NGOs—to shed light on the trade in women’s bodies and efforts to stop it. In her rich ethnographic study, she focuses on the structural flaws in place that allow, and sometimes even help, sex trafficking to continue to flourish.
