"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
