Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'...the study is a compelling and fascinating one' - International Sports Law Journal

'...Tsoukala has not merely provided a new slant on a single phenomenon; she has shown that the seemingly banal control machinery of European integration can and does infringe on hard-won rights.' - The Oxonian

'Tsoukala takes the reader on an exciting legal journey that shows how the subtle phenomenon of hooliganism has gone from being a domestic national problem of the relatively minor nature to be a great European debate where the issue of civil rights brought to a head in relation to countries' security'. - Aage Alderman, Department of Sport Sciences, Malmo University
