Rosenberg argues that prostitution was a central feature of Cuban modernity, shaping and being shaped by the island's rapidly changing social, economic, and political landscape. She explores the ways in which prostitution was regulated, contested, and experienced by different groups of Cubans, including women, men, and children. She also examines the role of prostitution in the development of Cuban nationalism, the rise of the tourism industry, and the emergence of new forms of urban life.

Prostitution, Modernity, and the Making of the Cuban Republic is a major contribution to the fields of Latin American history, gender studies, and urban history. It offers a fresh perspective on the history of Cuba and provides new insights into the complex relationship between prostitution, modernity, and social change.
