ISSUE OF NATIONAL IDENTITY IN BRITISH ABOUT-FOOTBALL LITERATURE

Abstract: 

At the end of the XX century there was a considerable group of books raising social problems connected with subculture of football "fans" in Great Britain. The works, basically devoted to hooliganism, appeared to be closely connected with «Englishness». This nonfiction and fiction literature represents the problems of national mentality at the level of mass consciousness and reveals the sad fact that the higher meanings have already been replaced by surrogates. 

Key words: 

football hooligan subcultures, national identity, Englishness, British social novel.
