This book traces international developments in the hooligan
phenomenon since the Heysel tragedy of 1985. The authors make
special reference to the troubled European championships in West
Germany in 1988 and look critically at political responses to the
problem. The authors used `participant observation' in their
research on British fans at the World Cup in Spain, and at matches
in Rotterdam and Copenhagen, and capture the authentic voice of
football hooliganism in their interviews. In this analysis of
patterns of football violence the authors suggest some short-term
proposals for restricting seriously violent and disorderly
behaviour at continental matches and put forward a long-term
strategy to deal with the root causes of hooligan behaviour.
