1312: Inside the Ultras

1312: Inside the Ultras: The explosive story of the radical gangs changing the face of politics 

Author-signed hardback copy 

1312: Among the Ultras is the new book by DG’s associate editor James Montague. We have a limited number of signed copies available at 20% off the RRP. 

Synopsis: You can see them, but you don’t know them.

Ultras are football fans like no others. A hugely visible and controversial part of the global game, their credo and aesthetic are replicated in almost every league everywhere on earth. Yet they remain unknown, an anti-establishment force that is transforming both football and politics. In this book, James Montague goes underground to uncover the true face of this dissident group for the first time.

1312: Among the Ultras tells the story of how the movement began and how it grew to become the global phenomenon that now dominates the stadiums from the Balkans and Buenos Aires. With unprecedented insider access the book investigates how ultras have grown into fiercely political organisations, embracing extremes on both the left and right. They fight against the commercialisation of football and society – and against the attempts to control them by the authorities, who both covet and fear their power.
