Product description

Review

a highly original and empirically rich study on the inner life-world of two of the most renowned groups of Italian neo-fascist football supporters, the Boys and Irriducibili of the Rome-based teams AS Roma and SS Lazio respectively
- Sport in Society

a unique and important contribution to the understanding of Italian hardcore fan culture by providing interviews and insights into this controversial, yet little known, subculture
- Sociology of Sport

a text that has no equal. The authors had unprecedented access to the inner workings of each organisation…intriguing, thought-provoking, and academic at the same time. Think of it as the Donnie Brasco of Italian football
- International Soccer Network

interesting and insightful…a journey into the heart of an otherwise shrouded society of extremely loyal and stoic neo-fascist groups

a factual and open report on the hardcore UltraS…The great success of the book is showing the depth behind the UltraS, not just their politics but the people who are the driving force behind their actions -- - Forsa Italian Football
