  • Gross Misbehavior and WickednessGross Misbehavior and Wickedness
    A Notorious Divorce in Early Twentieth-Century America

    Jean Elson

    "[A] fascinating true story. Based on excellent archival work and Elson's precise scholarship, this meticulous contextualizing of divorce from a woman's point of view in the early twentieth century also has contemporary applications regarding gender relationships....it reads like a contemporary detective novel—as every legal victory for each side was appealed by the other. This is a moving and captivating book."Elizabeth Ettorre, Professor Emerita of Sociology in the School of Law and Social Justice at the University of Liverpool and author of Autoethnography as Feminist Method: Sensitising the Feminist "I"

    Edited by Katie Hail-Jares, Corey S. Shdaimah, and Chrysanthi S. Leon

Challenging Perspectives on Street-Based Sex Work provides quintessential and concise information, highlighting the competing criminal justice policies, the ideologies behind them, and, crucially, their impact on people who are targeted when they exchange sex."
    Carol Leigh, Bay Area Sex Worker Advocacy Network, and inventor of

Weaving in research findings, the chapters critically examine action steps currently mandated and in place and provide a call to action to move forward in addressing and preventing violence against college woment."Bonnie S.
