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.

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.

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'.

If you think the youth of today are out of control an this is something new, have a read. This is a scholarly but really entertaining look at youth rebellion and "hooliganism" over the ages. I came across the book as a recommendation during a Warwick University Social Studies Course. Amusing and genuinely enthralling.
