Brotherhoods, The

Author(s): Arthur Veno

Crime & Punishment

An exclusive account of Australia's outlaw motorcycle clubs, written by our foremost expert on bikie culture. 'If it's a good ride, there's nothing like it . . .you and the machine become one. . . . It gets to the point on the edge of a hard ride where there is a balance between taking your machine further and a fear of dying. Managing that space is real freedom.' Riding like there's no tomorrow on the open road, the wind in your face, handling a powerful and responsive machine - you can't get that sort of freedom in a car. Bikies consider themselves 'the last free people in society', unconstrained by the regulations that rule ordinary citizens. And they guard their privacy jealously. Arthur Veno's account of bikie culture is as close to firsthand as is ever likely to be published. Australia's leading expert on the bikie scene, Veno reveals the true picture of the brotherhoods. Drawing on in-depth interviews and personal stories, along with meticulous research, he explains the rules and rituals of becoming a club member, tells of landmark incidents in bikie folklore, profiles some famous biker identities and, in the final chapter, takes off with the Gypsy Jokers on their controversial New Year run in Western Australia.
