Hobbs, Richard, Hadfield, Philip, Lister, Stuart and Winlow, Simon (2003) Bouncers: violence and governance in the night time economy. Clarendon studies in crimonology . Oxford University Press, Oxford, UK. ISBN 9780199252244
This book is the first attempt to understand Britain's night-time economy, the violence that pervades it, and the bouncers whose job it is to prevent it. Using ethnography, participant observation and extensive interviews with all the main players, this controversial book charts the emergence of the bouncer as one of the most graphic symbols in the iconography of post-industrial Britain.
