Focusing on a number of contemporary research themes and placing them within the context of palpable changes that have occurred within football in recent years, this timely collection brings together essays about football, crime and fan behaviour from leading experts in the fields of criminology, law, sociology, psychology and cultural studies. Examining issues such as the links between football supporter sub-cultures and hate crime, football and corruption, football as a crime generator and the policing of crowds, this volume moves forward the debate on football hooliganism, situating the study of football and crime into appropriate historical, theoretical and policy contexts.
