Challenges the idea that football hooliganism is mainly an English disease, by looking at the social roots and forms it takes in 15 countries. Looks at why hooligans attach themselves to football, the role of the media, race, religious and class factors, and how it relates to how central a part soccer pays in the culture of the country.
