Women for Hire: Prostitution and Sexuality in France after 1850

Dispelling the lurid stereotypes portrayed in fiction, Alain Corbin depicts prostitution in nineteenth-century France not as a vice, crime, or disease, but as a well-organized business Corbin reveals how the brothel served the sex industry in the same way that the factory served manufacturing: it provided an institution for the efficient and profitable sale of services.

Alain Corbin

Alain Corbin (born 1936) is a French historian.

Trained in the Annales School, Corbin's work has moved away from the large-scale collective structures studied by Fernand Braudel towards a history of sensibilities which is closer to Lucien Febvre's history of "mentalités". [Citation | last=Godfrey | first=Simon | contribution=Alain Corbin | title=The Columbia History of Twentieth-Century French Thought | year=2006 | isbn=978-0-231-10790-7] His books have explored the histories of such subjects as male desire and prostitution, sensory experience of smell and sound, and the 1870 burning of a young nobleman in a Dordogne village.
