'The author's expert knowledge of Chinese law and its legal system and ability to access and integrate Chinese-language legal and behavioral research resources give her the capacity to bring a strong Chinese voice to the analysis if these issues. In and of itself, sex work law and legal practice is, as the book makes clear, an important driver of HIV in China. Because similar laws and practices obtain elsewhere in Asia, the implications extend beyond China. In my research experience, I have not come across another work that covers this important material this thoroughly. Indeed, any one chapter of this book would be a significant contribution to the existing literature. The issue of the best regulatory approach to prostitution remains a matter of active, vigorous debate, and will not be resolved any time soon, so the book will be of use for some years to come.'
