    No one likes us, we don’t care’ is the anthem of the most notorious fans in British football. But little is known about the actual people who generated and continue to maintain this most infamous of working-class subcultures. In addition to the voices of the fans themselves, this book provides a rich and original account of the historical background, social sources, expressive culture and ritual practices of Millwallism, a far more complex, meaningful and anthropologically compelling phenomenon than the media stereotypes suggest. The author argues that Millwall functions in the popular consciousness as a powerful symbol: specific understandings of ‘football hooliganism’, working-class masculinity, and violent ‘neo-fascism’ are triggered by its use in the media and in everyday social interaction. There are, it follows, few social groups as heavily mythologized as Millwall fans. Further, the generation and maintenance of this myth has significance far beyond the club itself, and is rooted in the meanings attached to working-class identities and modernity, masculinity and the body. This book will be essential reading for anyone interested in Millwall, the issues of ‘football hooliganism’ or working-class masculinity, sociology, anthropology, or sports studies.Shortlisted for the Philip Abrams Memorial Book Prize 2001

  • The (Peculiar) Economics of NCAA Basketball: The Economics of the NCAA Basketball Tournament in the Era of the Global Audience

    The economics of NCAA Division I men's basketball are peculiar because it fails to meet two of the three key operating objectives leagues must weigh in order to be successful. It remains financially successful despite abdicating entirely its ability to hire the best college-aged players and doing little to enhance competitive balance across members. Instead, it continually adopts policies that leverage further the intense fan interest of resource-rich teams. Discussed are the implications of policies like the expansion of the tournament, the adoption of the pod system, the Basketball Fund, and the conference-centric structure of the organization. The consequences of the league's short-sighted governing policies are catching up to it, as television broadcasting technology has caused an increasingly large resource gulf to exist between the resource-rich superstars and their lesser-known, resource-poor rivals, a result that has damaged the overall health of the league.
