This study examines and illuminates how the lives of Korean prostitutes in the 1970s served as the invisible underpinnings to US-Korean military policies at the highest level.

U.S.Korea Review

Drawing on a vast array of data­­archival materials, interviews with officials, social workers, and the candid revelations of sex industry workers -Moon explores the way in which the bodies of Korean prostitutes -where, when, and how they worked and lived -were used by the US and the Korean governments in their security agreements. . . .marginalized and made invisible in militarily dependent societies.
