Incorporating the voices and insights of street sex workers through personal interviews, this monograph argues that the material conditions of many street workers a€” the physical environments they live in and their effects on the workersa€™ bodies, identities, and spirits a€” are represented, reproduced, and entrenched in the language surrounding their work. As an ethnographic case study of a local system that can be extrapolated to other subcultures and the construction of identities, this book disrupts some of the more prevalent academic and lay understandings about street prostitution by providing a thorough analysis of the material conditions surrounding street work and their connection to discourse. McCracken offers an explanation of how constructions can be made differently in order to achieve representations that are generated by the marginalized populations themselves, while placing responsibility for this marginalization on the society in which these people live.315a€“332.
