Summary
Georgian London evokes images of elegant buildings & fine art, but it was also a city where prostitution was rife & thousands of people were dependent on the wages of sin. The sex industry was, in fact, a very powerful force indeed, & in this book, Dan Cruickshank shows how it came to affect almost every aspect of life in the capital
