About the Author

Joan A. Reid is an Assistant Professor of Criminology at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, USA. Her research concerns include human trafficking, child maltreatment, sexual victimization, and mental health treatment. Dr. Reid has authored numerous research reports, scholarly articles, and book chapters chiefly focused on human trafficking.


"This volume will certainly be of great interest to criminological scholars whose work intersects with trafficking, particularly to those with an interest in the USA. I found Chapters 2 and 8, on police perceptions of trafficking and female sex tourism, particularly convincing and stimulating. The volume as a whole demonstrates a range of methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative, that explore trafficking from a number of different angles and illuminate many of its aspects."

Owain Johnstone, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford
