Publication: "Football Fandom in Europe and Latin America" Culture, Politics, and Violence in the 21st Century

This book combines pieces of work on Europe and Latin America, the two continents where football arouses the most ardent passions among its spectators.

Curiously, an undertaking to compare on a large scale the forms extreme fandom takes in these two geographical areas is still lacking. A situational analysis of the scientific literature devoted to the subject over the last two or three decades represents a step in this direction, making a scattered store of knowledge accessible. It thus answers a need to clarify regional differences in identities and in the practices of supporters.
