By Anne Hayes

This booklet analyzes the improvement of woman prostitution within the Pacific port of Puntarenas, Costa Rica through the complex degree of the espresso exporting economic climate (1880-1930), on the peak of the consolidation of the liberal nation. Hayes argues that prostitution within the port differed from that of the espresso generating highlands as a result of differential fiscal, social, and political improvement. within the outer edge of Puntarenas, the advance of prostitution mirrored a much less stigmatized view of sexual trade than that of the highlands, the place prostitution, even though criminal, threatened the tenets of liberal nationalism in response to racial homogeneity and relatives values. girls of the highlands have been inspired to breed the nation's "more eu" inventory of employees and to make sure the felony transference of estate via criminal church marriages - either a part of a layout to stabilize the espresso exporting venture. in contrast, prostitutes and different operating ladies of Puntarenas, many immigrants from the "less ecu" populations of neighboring areas and so much in concubinage, have been freer to do what the legislations prescribed - sign in as prostitutes in valid alternate. Such local disparities exhibit weaknesses in conventional reasons of Costa Rican exceptionalism, that have rested at the premise of cultural homogeneity and feature mirrored the realities of just one zone of the rustic. The publication advances another cause of the improvement of the nation's extra democratic associations, situating Costa Rican exceptionalism within the nation's unfastened exertions method, of which the hard work prostitute in Puntarenas presents an example.
