And at the traditional end of the sexual service economy, prostitution has experienced new growth.Along with this has come new legal measure and attempts to regulate the sexual leisure economy, and far more comprehensive plans than ever before to regulate prostitution, in particular in the Government strategy on prostitution 2006.This book seeks to address the range of issues and contemporary debates on the sex industry, including the demand by customers who buy sex, the policing of women who work in the street sex industry, and the violence that pervades prostitution. It shows how these issues have been addressed in policy terms, the problems that have emerged from this, and how a social policy might be formulated to minimise harm and enhance public understanding.Overall the book provides a critical perspective on prostitution policies and the legal chaos and complexities that surround this.

Losing Earth

Author: Nathaniel Rich
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644004061
Release Date: 2019
Genre: Science

Die Klimakatastrophe, die wir jetzt erleben, hätte verhindert werden können. Vor dreißig Jahren gab es die Chance, den Planeten zu retten – doch sie wurde verspielt. Nathaniel Rich schildert in dieser dramatischen Reportage, wie es zu diesem wahrhaft globalen Versagen kam. Wir folgen einer Gruppe von Wissenschaftlern, Aktivisten und Politikberatern rund um den Umweltlobbyisten Rafe Pomerance und den Nasa-Forscher James Hansen, die Ende der siebziger Jahre erstmals erkennen, dass sich die Erderwärmung desaströs beschleunigt, aber auch, was dagegen zu tun ist – beinahe alles, was wir heute darüber wissen, stammt aus dieser Zeit. Rich schildert ein Jahrzehnt erbitterter Kämpfe um Öffentlichkeit, Anerkennung, politische Maßnahmen – und wie diese 1989, kurz vor dem Durchbruch, tragisch scheitern. Eine historische Reportage, die aktueller nicht sein könnte: Wir bekommen in den kommenden Jahren das zu spüren, was vor drei Jahrzehnten versäumt wurde – so wie unser gegenwärtiges Scheitern das Schicksal des Planeten in naher Zukunft besiegelt. Die Erde in ihrer heutigen Gestalt ist bereits verloren, sie wurde damals verloren – und so erzählt Rich hier die Geschichte eines beispiellosen Menschheitsversagens.
