Prostitution in Los Angeles has a long history. The story of its evolution from a red-light district run by women to a corporate vice industry dominated by men tells us much about the development of urban America. Kooistra examines race and gender dynamics alongside issues of government and police corruption, commerce and larger changes in society.
