    This book provides a highly readable introduction to the phenomenon of football hooliganism. It is ideal for students taking courses around this subject, as well as those with a professional interest such as the police and those responsible for stadium safety and management.

    This book provides an introduction and overview to the subject of football hooliganism. Unlike many other books on the subject it is not concerned with a single theoretical perspective but is concerned rather to provide a critical overview, discussing the various approaches to the subject. Three fallacies provide themes which run through the book: the notion that football hooliganism is new, that it is a uniquely football problem, and that it is an English phenomenon The book examines the history of football related violence, the problems in defining the nature of football hooliganism, the data available on the extent of football hooliganism, a detailed review of the various theories about who the hooligans are and why they behave as they do, and an analysis of policing and social policy in relation to tacking football hooliganism.
