It is also interesting to see the responses of government and police in dealing with stereotypes and real criminal activity. I think anyone who reads this book will see familiar practices acted out by the gangs, the authorities and the community.

I also recommend it to those interested in what we might need to do differently for government policies to become better aligned with the lives of young people like the 15-year-old boy who has lived in my head for a long time, a boy filled with his own particular brand of magic and who was lost to us at a very early age.

Some of the more interesting sections in the book discuss things outlaw, such as, clubhouse etiquette, tinnie houses, women in gangs, rules and informal codes of behaviour, taxing, intimidation and other forms of underworld entrepreneurialism. Gangs may always be evident in less deprived communities, but with better social conditions they are likely to be smaller in number, less entrenched, and generate fewer community problems. In that first meeting, I asked the boy about his attraction to the gang and he replied that it was a place he felt he belonged, going on to talk about the 23 foster homes he had been in since the age of eight and his feeling of never belonging anywhere — until the gang.

Please note that some of the content on pages 40—41 may not be suitable for all readers. Based on 10 years of gang research, this book chronicles the rise of the Hell's Angels and other bike gangs in the 1960s, the growth of the Mongrel Mob and Black Power in the 1970s, and organized crime during the last decade. The book shows that for too many years the policies developed by central government have often been little more than a reactive and short-term response to the issue of the day. The Mongrel Mob held a convention in 1986 and the Auckland Regional Authority granted the Mob part use of a farm called Ambury Park in South Auckland. The feeling of being a part of something strong and powerful and exhilarating, and this is only enhanced by the furtive glances of onlookers and the respect paid by those who come in direct contact with the group. He knows about honour, he knows about the road, he knows the code.
