Description - Among The Thugs by Bill Buford

Before Running with the Firm came Among the Thugs - the bestselling classic account of football violence in English football.

___________________________
THE BESTSELLING ACCOUNT OF FOOTBALL VIOLENCE

Welcome to the world of football thuggery.

They have names like Bonehead, Paraffin Pete and Steamin' Sammy. They like lager, football, the Queen, and themselves. They love England. They dislike the rest of the known universe.

The beautiful game remains ugly.

From following Manchster's Red Army to drinking with skinheads, acclaimed writer Bill Buford enters this alternate society and records both its savageries and its sinister allure with the social imagination of George Orwell and the raw personal engagement of Hunter S. Thompson.

Among the Thugs is a terrifying, malevolently funny, supremely chilling book about the experience, and the eerie allure, of crowd violence and football culture.

Buy Among The Thugs by Bill Buford from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
