Publisher Comments:

Completely revised and updated, the definitive account of Australia's outlaw motorcycle clubs, written by the country's foremost expert on biker culture
 
Written by Australias leading expert on the scene, this book reveals the true picture of the biker brotherhoods. Drawing on in-depth interviews, personal stories, and years of meticulous research, it explains the rules and rituals of becoming a club member, tells of landmark incidents in bike folklore, and profiles famous biker identities. This fully revised edition outlines the changing nature of biker culture, including the rise of the so-called Nike bikies—an outlaw motorcycle club whose drug and turf wars threaten to spill onto the streets—and governmental attempts to introduce controversial laws to control the violence. A glossary of biker terms is included.
