Review:

"This is one of the sadly rare instances of an Irish publisher producing a book not noticeably Irish in target readership or origin but of international importance and appeal." Books Ireland Summer 2002 "It is a must read for sports sociologists and others interested in the root causes of fan deviance ... it demonstrates how sports provide an important laboratory in which to study modern societal issues, such as class conflict and interracial strife." Contemporary Sociology 32 (4) 2003 "the contributors present an illuminating and at times entertaining composite sketch of the complex forces that generate this ubiquitous social ritual. Researchers interested in the diffusion of global sports culture and associated institutions such as fan groups and stadium security apparatus will find this volume a useful resource." CHOICE Sept 2003 "The overall balance of authors provides a timely international contribution to what is a growing worldwide phenomenon." Irish Journal of Sociology 2003

Book Description University College Dublin Press, Ireland, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Soccer hooliganism has long been regarded as primarily an English - or perhaps British - disease, yet in fact it has long existed as a social problem worldwide. In this volume, experts consider hooliganism in 14 countries - eight soccer-playing countries in Europe (including Ireland), two in South America, Australia, South Africa, Japan, and, in the case of North America, a chapter on general sports-related violence. Why have problems of hooliganism from the outset become more regularly attached to soccer than to other global sports? The social roots and forms of soccer hooliganism are explored in the various countries. Do racial, religious or social class cleavages play a part in developing and fostering football violence? What part do the media play? Is hooliganism related to the degree to which soccer is central to the value-system of a country, and the length of time that it has occupied such a position? Though they themselves adhere to a range of different sociological perspectives, the contributors focus on the important theoretical framework devised by Eric Dunning and the Leicester School, in particular the role of aggressive masculinity and the hypothesis that attending matches is part of a quest for excitement .
