i am from Ireland and i have to write an essay on football violence and i would like to focus on the italian ultras; do you know some books that i can read in english?

I found these two

one is by the english journalist Tim Parks: A seasons with verona
the other is by an italian sociologist Alberto Testa and is called Football, Fascism and Fandom: The UltraS of Italian Football

are they good? can you recomend me others ; recent ones though

I haven't read any book on ultras but I've only heard good responses about Tim Parks' one. And Verona were among the most violent in Italy back in the days, so it should work for you.
