Overview

Bikies Consider Themselves 'The Last Free People in Society', Unrestricted by the Laws that Rule Ordinary Citizens. Yet they have Strict Joining Rules and Jealously Guard Their Privacy. The Twenty-First Century has Seen Bikie Culture Move from Secretive Disorganised Crime to Far More Threatening Organised Criminal Activities that led to the Death of a Hell's Angels Associate at Sydney Airport in 2009, and the Gang-Style Killings that Preceded It.

In this fully revised edition of The Brotherhoods, he outlines the rise of the so-called Nike bikies whose drugs and turf wars threaten to spill onto our streets, and the attempts by governments to introduce controversial laws to control the violence.

The Brotherhoods is the definitive account of bikie culture in Australia.

"One of the few accounts that balances research, studies and statistics with interviews, firsthand accounts and personal stories. . . . Not many people get that kind of access to OMCs and even fewer are able to write with such a balanced view."  —NAVY News

    A third party look at bikies(bikers). You've heard the cops side, the outlaws side, and now you read what a highly educated individual on the fringe of both sides has written. This book is hard to put down.

    Nice piece of work for a look at Australian Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs. Living in the U.S. though, I wish there was as comprehensive a look at the clubs here. Forget the sensational crap and read this book first.
