Joep Rottier wrote this book about New Zealand’s experience of completely decriminalizing the sex industry. It was based on extensive legal and academic research, as well as more than 100 interviews with key actors and participants in the sex industry.
To prepare the book for his Ph.D. thesis defense and publication, I proofread for errors and did a sentence-level copyedit. Joep, whose first language is Dutch, wanted to write in a way that met academic standards but maintained readability for a general audience. We used American English and APA style.
