Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Biker Gangs and Organized Crime examines the reported criminal behavior of the entire spectrum of 1% biker clubs and members. It identifies the clubs whose members have been involved in criminal behavior and classifies their behaviors as individual, group, or club- sponsored/condoned behavior. While other books examine the criminal exploits of one or more of what are called the "Big Five" biker clubs because of their size and sophistication, or the sensational crimes of lesser known 1% biker clubs or club members, this book pays attention to the criminal activities of individuals, groups and chapters of other clubs as well. The book is based on journalistic accounts and autobiographies of former and present members of biker clubs, academic/scholarly works, law enforcement/government reports, articles from newspapers and biker web sites, and a content analysis of federal and state court cases regarding bikers and motorcycle clubs.

In my opinion, Mister Barker didn't intend to give us a history book; He ment to prove a point: Are Biker Gangs(Clubs) organized crime.
"... for these reasons, this book is based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods: published sources such as journalistic accounts, autobiographies, academic/scholarly works,law enforcement reports, news paper articals, interviews...", and a few web sites. While trying to prove that Motorcycle Clubs are "gangs",and therefore orginized crime, He has compiled a great-condenced history book. He cites noted authors such as Arthur Veno, Ed Winterhalder, John Hall, Hunter Thompson,and Bill Hayes. He gives us extinsive history on Canada(Lavigne). He even adds a few opinions of his own.
Mister Baker, you might not have proven your theory,but you did give us a great-condensed history book.
