4.0 out of 5 stars Hooligan - a history of respectable fears, 15 Oct 2002
By 
liz Nichol (Cramlington, Northumberland United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hooligan: A History of Respectable Fears (Paperback)
thought we were the first generation to be plagued by youth crime? Think football hooligans are something that started with the premiership? then think again.
this is a lively, interesting and informative read which highlights the history of the perception of youth disorder in Britain.
This makes light reading for those studying society, criminal justice etc. yet it is full of useful dates, quotes and can invoke lively discussions if used in groupwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new under the sun, 10 May 2009

This review is from: Hooligan: A History of Respectable Fears (Paperback)
Whenever people go on about the 'good old days' I always refer them to this book. Seems like all our 'modern' problems existed from the dawn of civilisation.
Evidently the 'good old days' are any years before what the majority of the population can remember back to.
Probably the last book to be promoted by the popular press.

This review is from: Hooligan: A History of Respectable Fears (Paperback)
Excellent book; questions the consistent use of a fear of moral decline by comparing it against a 20 year recurrence and the perpetual notion of a past 'golden age'.
