In this chapter I will try to figure out in which way the fans differ from some countries and how they behave.

In the big yellow press newspapers in England, we can find a lot of articles about violent incidents at football matches caused by Hooligans. The headlines are written in bold letters and they are very dramatic such as "Murder on a soccer train" or something similar. There is often the question what the media has to do with the problem of football violence, but there are some facts and theories that are quite interesting. To find out more about ... mehr

The first professional black player in Britain has been Arthur Wharton in1889. Today, black players are not unusual-25% of professional players in Europe are black, but only 1% of the spectators are not white.
The forms of racial attacks lead from racist chants from the terraces, as it was wor ... mehr
Great Britain has the biggest problem concerning football violence, so they have also tried to find ways to tackle the problem. The plan in which they tried to fight against the hooligans was not so easy, because the problem was for the police to find out and to differ between the dangerous Hooligan and the ordinary football supporter. This difficulty lead the police to developing a system where all fans were included: the ones who were travell ... mehr

Personal comment: Es fällt einem schwer nach diesem Buch, psychisch Kranke noch als solche zu sehen. Dieses Buch vermittelt lebensnah, daß in einem kranken Menschen auch eine Seele mit Gefühlen, die auch jeder andere Mensch hat, steckt. Ergreifend wird geschildert, wie Deborah Blau aus ihrem imaginären Königreich Yr, das sie gegen die Umwelt abschirmt, entkommt. Andere psychisch Kranke scheinen in diesem Buch eher die normalsten zu sein. Die Wär ... mehr
The Cold War was a dispute between the two power blocs, -the Soviet Union und the USA, after 1945.

In this essay I will talk about the origins of the Cold War, up to 1947.
It was as early as 1917 when the first open hostilities occurred w ... mehr

Few countries in the world have such an ancient and diverse culture as India´s. Stretching back in an unbroken sweep over 5000 years, India´s culture has been enriched by successive waves of migration which were absorbed into the Indian way of life. Its physical, religious and racial variety is as immense as its linguistic diversity. Underneath this diversity lies the continuity of Indian civilisation and social structure from the ... mehr
