The story:
Among the Thugs is a work of journalism written by Bill Buford in 1990 documenting football hooliganism in the United Kingdom. Buford, born an American and residing in Britain, became interested in crowd hooliganism when on his way home from Cardiff in 1982 he boarded a train that was commandeered by supporters coming from a match. He spent the next eight years of his life going to football matches, befriending supporters, and witnessing riots, the result of which was this book.

About the author:
Buford's experiences:
Buford is in several riots, notably in Turin and at the 1990 World Cup in Sardinia. He is at many games in the U.K., spending time mostly with Manchester United. He goes to several National Front gatherings (as the NF draws many of its supporters from football teams), one of which turns violent. He is beaten twice by the police, once when caught with the rioting English supporters in Sardinia, where he was beaten for several minutes. He relates both first-hand and second-hand reports of hooligan violence, ranging from beatings to stabbings to a supporter biting out the eye of a policeman
