About this item

The Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs (OMCGs) are, without doubt, one of the most interesting, diverse, eclectic, social groups in society today. They are considered outsiders, deviants, and more often than not they are seen as criminally organized. Yet we know so little about them, their structure, organization, and their ethos. Still, society legislates, monitors, and controls, in an effort to police the behaviors we know so little about. In this new and extremely informative text, Bain and Lauchs bring together a number of subject experts from around the world in an effort to explain the development, growth, and global expansion of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs. For the first time, this text brings together discussions of the OMCGs from Canada, the United States, South and Central America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This text should be compulsory reading for anyone interested in the examination or investigation of this group in society today. It is particularly valuable to criminal justice students, those studying social groups, gangs and organizations, or the sociology of deviance. However, it is also just as relevant for professionals working within the criminal justice and/or legislative field.
