The best clubbing books

Books and clubbing are not natural bedfellows. After all, clubs are dark and the music is loud. Where have you got a place to relax with a good tome?

That said, club subculture is important. It has been documented in a range of books and viewpoints. Anyone involved in the culture or industry at any level should know what the scene is all about. Especially if you are lucky enough to earn money from clubbing and dance music.

So, here are the clubbing book that I think are essential to every library. Practical, theoretical and just plain fun. It will be updated regularly so make sure you subscribe to get updates sent to you.
