During the inter-revolutionary period, Tsar Nicholas II successfully drove away many of those elements of Russian society which had given him the support necessary to maintain his position following the Revolution of 1905. Traditionally, historians have pointed to the Tsar's political and military blunders as the explanation for this departure. Social considerations, such as the deterioration of Russia's domestic structure, have been overlooked.
The phenomenon called hooliganism was a manifestation of this process. This paper, therefore, will explore the relationship between hooliganism and Russian domestic politics after 1905.
