View Author Bio
Moon, Katharine H.S. : Wellesley College
Katharine H. S. Moon is assistant professor of political science at Wellesley College.
"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."
--The U.S.Korea Review
"In a carefully researched study of U.S. military prostitution in Korea, Moon validates Cynthia Enloe's claim that the personal is international. These moving stories tell how the lives of Korean prostitutes in the 1970s served as nearly invisible instruments of U.S.-Korean military policies at the highest level. Moon's innovative case study demonstrates how a Cold War alliance was maintained at the price of these women's personal insecurity and challenges us to reconsider the human costs of international security policies."
