This e-book provides a severe portrait of the British police via a close ethnography in their paintings at soccer suits. Megan O'Neill not just sheds mild on an issue of excessive media curiosity, soccer hooliganism, but in addition provides the police in a unconditionally clean point of view. through the use of the paintings of Erving Goffman, she demonstrates how the police are a miles from unified strength. Their casual interplay "teams" divide them operationally and socially.

Dunning et al admit that a large part of their data stems from an historical analysis of newspaper reports (1988: 8, 11), hardly an objective source. Armstrong (1993: 11) has slated the Leicester researchers for claiming to be ‘experts’ on football violence looking for a cure, and thus positioning themselves as government advisors. He feels it is not the role of sociologists to stop the phenomenon they study, but to better understand it. This criticism could also be laid on Taylor (above) and his discussion of a new moral education for disorderly football fans.

His purpose is to analyse the views of police officers and supporters on football hooliganism and make recommendations on how the police can improve their procedures. He surveyed supporters, supporters’ organisations and police commanders for the bulk of his data. He makes 43 recommendations including improved communication/rapport between the fans and police, clearer division of responsibilities between police and stewards, more responsibility for stewards, how to move supporters safely, using the same officers at all football games, and maintaining segregation policies.

Armstrong and Hobbs (1994) also discuss the extreme covert means of control that the police have employed in the recent past to arrest football hooligans. They analyse the work of undercover police officers who attempted to infiltrate, gather intelligence on, and eventually – with the back-up of uniformed officers – arrest major hooligan groups in the 1980s and early 1990s. Most of these operations failed as charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence. However, some of Previous Research 37 these ‘dawn raids’ have lead to convictions and in general ‘the policing of football supporters is a political issue which has seen the normalisation of surveillance and control without a political protest.
