1993 Bill Buford 'Among The Thugs'

First Vintage Departures edition of American journalist Bill Buford's unflinching account of English football hooligans in the 1980s

Buford first became interested in the subject when living in London after a train he was on was taken over by a post-match crowd. In true 'gonzo' style, he spent eight years attending matches, befriending supporters and firm members, witnessing riots and taking the odd beating from police. It's a fascinating read that's as funny as it is shocking, and Buford's neutral outsider approach gives him a truly unique perspective as he tries to understand what makes this subculture tick.
