One group in society, the outlaw bikers, have bonded together and raised a greasy finger to the government and police. Everywhere the remaining bastions of brotherhood in society are disintegrating. Police are corrupt and mistrustful of each other. The armed forces are bastardised and demoralised, crippled by politics and their involvement in illegal foreign wars. The bikers say they are the last free men in society, an almost paramilitary force that operates on strong, inalienable codes of behaviour and justice, a place where you truly are your brother's keeper. Or at least that is the theory. It will soon be tested. Outlaws is a book about how the same forces that have weakened our social institutions are at play inside the motorcycle clubs. They are being weakened and transformed, sometimes into vicious criminal enterprises, harbouring some of the most dangerous criminals in Australia. A struggle is underway inside the clubs between those who believe in the ideal of freedom and those who use the power of the club colours to their own criminal advantage. It's the story of how the clubs try to save their collective souls in the face of greed and self-interest.
