Bouncers: violence and governance in the night time economy

By Richard Hobbs, Philip Hadfield, Stuart Lister and Simon Winlow

Abstract

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
