Review:

"A grotesque, horrifying, repellent and gorgeous book; A Clockwork Orange come to life." --John Gregory Dunne

"An important, perhaps prophetic, book ... both exciting and sad at the core.... [Buford is] a superbly talented reporter." --The New York Times Book Review

"Brilliant ... one of the most unnerving books you will ever read." --Newsweek

Like Michael Herr or Ryszard Kapuscinski, Buford has witnessed events which can only be compared in intensity to those of a war ... an unflinching look into the festering soul of England ... a fuckin' great read." --David Byrne

Animated, witty, and so pungent you can taste the stale lager." --Washington Post Book World

Book Description:

Before Running with the Firm came Among the Thugs - the bestselling classic account of football violence in English football.
