Health, Migration, and Sex Work: The experience of TAMPEP edited by Licia Brussa
A more technical book concerning prostitution of women in Europe, focusing especially on migrant (and illegal) workers in prostitution. Although it contains a significant amount of facts, it contains very little personal details and/or quotes from the prostitutes themselves. In the Netherlands, they point out the crackdown on illegals working in prostitution has been detrimental to the women involved, often forcing them into seeking second-hand assistance for prostitution (and thus causing them to lose their independence, either to traffickers, pimps, madams, husbands, etc.).
