DIVA gripping history of outlaw motorcycle club culture from its beginnings to the present day./divDIV /divDIVIn a world where most of us roll over when confronted by the power of authority, the antihero figure of the outlaw biker stands beyond the crowd, a beacon of social freedom. By choosing to live outside of society’s conventions, the one-percenter has the inner strength to act on his own convictions. Though most of us are too timid to venture into these outer margins of society, the one-percenter not only enters those margins—he stomps on them. In Hell on Wheels, avid motorcyclist Bill Hayes dives deep into the world of the outlaw motorcyclist, exploring legendary clubs like the Hells Angels, the Bandidos, the Outlaws, the Vagos, the Pagans, the Mongols, and many others, allowing the reader to peer into motorcycle club culture. Featuring both modern and historical photos, as well as a rare collection of club memorabilia found in no other publication, Hell on Wheels traces the roots and development of motorcycle club culture: its origins in the years following World War II; the turbulent 1960s and the disco era; the transition of clubs from loose groups of hooligans to highly organized machines; and, more recently, the copious clashes with law enforcement amid the post-9/11 world of the Patriot Act. The one-percenter has become one of the most popular figures in outlaw culture, and Hell on Wheels is his story./div

This pioneering collection of provocative essays focuses on collective behaviors organized around imagery, style, and symbolic meaning, and considers the ways in which legal and political authorities and the mass media construct these behaviors as criminal. Arguing for the development of a new cultural criminology, the contributors examine a wide range of social and cultural phenomena such as the politics of worldwide urban graffiti and the interplay of skinhead violence and musical style. On the cutting edge of contemporary theory, Cultural Criminology maps directions for further exploration in this emerging synthesis of criminological and cultural studies.

Whether defined by the carnivalesque excesses of Troma studios (The Toxic Avenger), the arthouse erotica of Radley Metzger and Doris Wishman, or the narrative experimentations of Abel Ferrara, Melvin Van Peebles, Jack Smith, or Harmony Korine, underground cinema has achieved an important position within American film culture. Often defined as "cult" and "exploitation" or "alternative" and "independent," the American underground retains separate strategies of production and exhibition from the cinematic mainstream, while its sexual and cinematic representations differ from the traditionally conservative structures of the Hollywood system. Underground U.S.A. offers a fascinating overview of this area of maverick moviemaking by considering the links between the experimental and exploitative traditions of the American underground.

Thompson »Der harte Kern, die Outlaw-Elite, das waren die Hells Angels.« Für seinen brisanten Insiderbericht über den Aufstieg der Hells Angels zur größten und berüchtigtsten Motorradgang der Welt nahm Thompson Mitte der sechziger Jahre über ein Jahr lang am exzessiven, gewalttätigen und freiheitsliebenden Leben der Angels teil.

»Bang-Bang Paparazzi« nannte das südafrikanische Lifestyle-Magazin Living 1992 die Johannesburger Fotografengruppe um Kevin Carter, Greg Marinovich, Ken Oosterbroek und João Silva. Bang-Bang, weil die vier mit ihren Kameras immer vor Ort waren, als in den Jahren 1990 bis 1994, den Jahren zwischen der Abschaffung der Apartheid und den ersten freien Wahlen in Südafrika, die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen ANC und Inkatha Freedom Party gewaltsam eskalierten. Von den vier Gründern leben heute nur noch zwei. Oosterbroek starb 1994 in einem Kugelhagel, Marinovich wurde dabei schwer verletzt. Carter, der zu der Zeit den Pulitzer-Preis erhielt, setzte ein Vierteljahr später seinem Leben selbst ein Ende. Nun berichten Marinovich und Silva von sich und über einen »verborgenenKrieg«, wie ihr inzwischen verfilmtes Buch Der Bang-Bang Club im Untertitel heißt. Denn die Brutalität der Jahre 1990 bis 1994 blieb wegen der Euphorie über Nelson Mandelas Freilassung und die endlich erreichte Demokratie kaum im Gedächtnis der Öffentlichkeit haften. Marinovich und Silva schreiben aber auch über ihre Rolle als Kriegsfotografen und über Facetten der Demokratisierung, die im Stillen bis in die Gegenwart Südafrikas nachwirken.
