Great Stuff! I learnt a lot about the notorious Ultras. Excellent the sections of the book that explain their organization and their behaviours (codes, norms and values) which is very different from the English hooligans. Great the sections about their fights with the Italian police forces and media.
it is a book that explains in detail and without academic jargon the notorious Italian Ultras; the orignanility of this book is that the author did not observe the ultras from distance like many but he was among them...Great reading espcially the fascist connection!!
A great book. As well as the Ultras the book covers many topics such as Italian politics, the differences between ultras and hooligans,neofascism and the Italian policing strategy to tackle ultras violence. My favourite part was the interviews with the ultras and the description of their mentalita' what the author describes as the warrior logic...
Devo dire che questo libro e' molto interessante, diverso dai libri sugli ultras che sono stati pubblicati in questi anni e che ripetono sempre le stesse cose. Si capisce che il sociologo conosce il mondo della curva e specialmente quello della nord dove io ho militato per tanti anni. Da comprare!
