"Thusi's compelling research provides unprecedented insights into the world of policing sex work, and supports arguments for decriminalizing sex work so that women may pursue options deemed beneficial, including selling sex." -- Cathi Albertyn * University of the Witwatersrand *
"Policing Bodies offers a fascinating, entirely unique analysis of the policing of prostitution within multiple street and indoor venues. A major contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of prostitution and its control." -- Ronald Weitzer * George Washington University *
"In this well-crafted examination of the sex industry in Johannesburg, Thusi heightens our understanding of the complex reality of sex work and the evolving nature of its policing. Not only does the book provide an excellent analysis of the situation, it is a really good read!" -- Frances M. Shaver * Concordia University *
"With its numerous footnoted references and studies providing both support and additional bibliographic research opportunities, Policing Bodies is a unique scholarly consideration that should be considered a mainstay not in just South African libraries, but in any collection strong in social and legal issues in general and sex work and law enforcement in particular." -- Diane C. Donovan * Midwest Book Review *
