We Love to Hate Each Other
Mediated Football Fan Culture
Edited by Roy Krovel & Thore Roksvold
Distributed by Coronet Books
$99.50 Paper original
Football fans are often portrayed as enthusiastic, loyal, critical and sometimes violent. But what is it about football that appeals to them? How do the media - newspapers, radio, TV, blogs and web forums - accomodate the needs of fans, and what connection - if any- is there between the imagined community of football fans and the broader society? These are the questions explored by 20 well-known and merited researchers from 8 countries in this anthology about the mediation of football fandom.
