Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing on 17 years of studying and participating in biker culture, Arthur Veno has compiled the ultimate collection of original biker writing. Here are insider accounts of landmark incidents in bike folklore, plus reprints of classic writing from biker - originated magazines, handouts, websites, and books. Gangs featured include the Bandidos, Hells Angels, Henchmen MC, the Outlaws, the Mongols, Annihilators, the Diablos, Gypsy Jokers, the Rebels, the Straight Satans, and the Vagos. Contributors include Freewheelin' Frank (one-time secretary of Hells Angels), Edward Winterhalder (among the most powerful members of the Bandidos), and Sonny Barger (founder of the Hells Angels). Also included are those rare accounts by outsiders who have managed successfully to "look in" on the gangs: including Hunter S. Thompson in his Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Modern Saga; William Queen, the undercover agent who infiltrated America's violent outlaw motorcycle gang the Mongols; and Daniel R. Wolf's account of riding with the Rebels.

About the Author

Arthur Veno is a leading expert on biker culture, and author of The Brotherhoods: Inside the Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs. He grew up in the US before moving to Australia. Most recently director of Monash University's Centre for Police and Justice Studies, Veno has studied the clubs for seventeen years, but he's no ordinary academic. He attends club nights, field days and runs, and counts members of the Gypsy Jokers, Hell's Angels and Coffin Cheaters as his friends (they call him the Mad Professor).
