First edition. "Mexico City had long played host to a thriving sex trade, and in 1904 officials registered 10,000 prostitutes out of a total urban population of 368,000... Renowned social hygienist, Dr. Louis Lara y Pardo shocked many when he figured that between 15 and 30 percent of Mexico City's female population participated in the sex trade. In his 1908 book "La Prostitucion en Mexico, Lara y Pardo claimed that a majority of these women represented a generation of poor, largely rural migrants who had come to the capital and crowded into a variety of working-class neighborhoods." - Wood. Augustin Lara. A cultural Biography. p. 22.
