HASH(0x9817f198) von 5 Sternen The Truth 28. August 2000
Von Kenny - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Read this book and you will come to understand just why, years after the tragedy, the families of the victims are still campaigning for justice.
This is the story as it should have been told, all those years ago. However the South Yorkshire police, the media, successive governments and finally, the law courts have all seen to it that the truth remains untold. 96 people died going to watch a football match. Many thousands more are still troubled by the traumas of that day and all they want is the guilty parties to own up.
It is a sometimes harrowing read, but Phil Scraton has reclaimed the book's title from the headline of Sun newspaper, which to this day, is still despised on Merseyside.

HASH(0x97e5a6b4) von 5 Sternen Dryly Written Account of a Fascinatingly Tragic Historical Event 7. Mai 2007
Von Tony Ukena - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Like Scraton, I am a supporter of Liverpool, the greatest English football team. Also, I was confused over how 90+ fans could be killed in a football game. After doing lots of research on what occurred in April 1989, I was hoping for more insight from Scraton.

And although he did provide some interesting facts, I couldn't help but find the book to drag dryly. The style is not visual which made it difficult for me to see, feel, and understand the commotion that occurred in Hillsborough. In deference to the families of the victims, I'm not intending to mean that I need gory descriptive details. What happened was extremely sad. But I had difficulties placing myself at Hillsborough on that dreaded April day.

Despite the dry style, the book offers tremendous facts as to what happened. I would not recommend this book to a casual student of violence in stadiums, but would to any Liverpool supporter who understood the inaccurate account of what happened that day when the media immorally and manipulatively blamed this tragedy on the Liverpool supporters and not on England's incorrect focus on how to control crowds or the Hillsborough police who had ignored lessons learned from previous crowd crushes and stampedes when they created a negligible contingency plan in the event of a disaster at the stadium which obviously failed.

Scraton does succeed in eliminating the overstated generalization of drunken soccer fans as the primary cause for deaths in stadiums. He also effectively delves into the lack of accountability by the security practices in place.

How the families were insensitively treated by the authorities was eye-opening. It seemed as if the police were interrogating families of the victims instead of assisting them during the grieving process. How the bodies of the victims were deemed "property of the coroner" was absurd.

Scraton also provides and excellent historical context which proves that there had been previous studies in stadium catastrophes that had been ignored. Had the police learned from the previous lessons, 90 fans would still be supporting the Reds.

Finally, this book does stand alone as the most accurate historical account of what went wrong on that sunny spring day in Sheffield where something unfortunately perilous occurred.

God bless those who perished in Hillsborough.
HASH(0x97f22dec) von 5 Sternen like many other fans 4. Dezember 2015
Von Ana - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I am a university student working on a research paper on how the Hillsborough disaster came to change football in the UK and Europe. As a die heart supporter of Liverpool F.C, the disaster is something that I, like many other fans, carry on my back and I'm reminded of every year during the April memorials. The occurrence of the event still remains unreal; how could 90+ have died experiencing the worlds most beautiful game.
My research focuses on the architectural, socioeconomic and cultural changes the disaster triggered. This book has proven a fantastic asset towards my secondary sources as it highlights the truthfulness of the event without the early on police censorship. Also significant are Scraton's comments on the appraisal of sporting grounds and the management of the stadiums and clubs. However, the book upholds its true value in Scratons recognition that early on works of Hillsbourough disaster provided inaccurate accounts of the event; thus, challenging media, the police, and the stadiums neglegations and inability to uphold crowd control and good stadium standards. Furthermore, the book highlights narration by the expectators and the families of the diseased, and their continual strive to find whom to blame for the disaster.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What was originally reported in the press as the actions of crazed soccer fans turned
out to be far more intricate. The blame ultimately rests more on an antiquated stadium,
the desire to "contain" those fans, and the overall lack of security. Add to that a slow
response to the unfolding disaster, and the results were tragic. Mr. Scranton tells
truths with almost fictional prose. Too bad it wasn't fiction.

Von MCL - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Though sometimes repetitive in its efforts to bring home points, the book is an irreplaceable part in the dialogue regarding Hillsborough. A thoughtful and complete documentation (to 2009) of what did and did not happen at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989, along with the ensuing representations and misrepresentations in the justice system and media.
