Manfred Zeller draws on extensive original research in Russian and Ukrainian archives, as well as interviews with spectators,\'hardcore ultras\'and hooligans from the Caucasus to Central Asia, to shed new light onto this phenomenon covering the period from the height of Stalin\'s terror (the 1930s) to the Soviet Union\'s collapse (1991). Across events as diverse as the Soviet Union\'s footballing triumph over the German world champions in 1955 and the Luzhniki stadium disaster in 1982, Zeller explores the ways in which people, against the backdrop of totalitarianism, articulated feelings of alienation and fostered a sense of community through sport. In the process, he provides a unique\'bottom-up\'reappraisal of Soviet history, culture and politics, as seen through the eyes of supporters and spectators.This is an important contribution to research on Soviet culture after Stalin, the history of sport and contemporary debates on antagonism in the post-Soviet world\"--Publisher\'s description.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Football fever and Soviet history -- Cops and robbers: the origins of Spartak, Dinamo and TsDKA fan communities in Moscow, 1930s\u20131950s -- Beat these monsters: stadium violence, official strategies and media, 1950s and 1960s -- Legitimate anger: opponents in the stadium -- Securing, educating, propagating: football fans as a problem in the Soviet public sphere -- Soviet couch potatoes: football fans in front of the television, 1960s\u20131980s -- Our own internationale: patriotism, nationality and transnational fan communities surrounding Dinamo Kiev, 1960s\u20131970s -- Travelling to away games by dog sleigh: organised fan culture and Soviet rule, 1970s\u20131980s -- Conclusions.
