From the bestselling authors of THINGS BOGANS LIKE comes a not-quite scientific study of all things bogan.E. Chas McSween et al have compiled this in-depth historical, sociological, geographic and cultural study that traces bogan culture back to society's very foundation, as well as identifying prototypical and stereotypical bogans through time. Brief discussion of the bogan of the 19th century, morphing to pre-war, then to the popularly held notion of the 'bogan' being 80s metal, flannel and Victoria Bitter. After exploring this stereotypical example they then track the leap to the 21st century bogan, clad in garish garb, holding their nationalism close to their chest and slavishly following every celebrity trend in magazines.BOGANOMICS is an important book as understanding is a bridge to unity. Read this book to broaden your knowlege ... or to laugh ... a lot.

The word bogan has a bad rap; first impressions are still associated with flannelette, VB, utes and mullets. But this would be wrong. The bogan has advanced and needs new explanation, evolution has cursed (or blessed, depending on your thinking) us with a modern version. The bogan with money. The bogan with aspirations. The bogan with Ed Hardy t-shirts. The new bogan will not rest until it owns a plasma TV so large that Rove McManus becomes six feet tall for the first time. Today's bogan defies income, class, race, creed, gender, religion and logic. Now the bogan is defined by what it does, what it says and, most importantly, what it buys. Those who choose to deny the bogan on the basis of their stockbroking career or their massive trust fund choose not to see the real bogan. Many bogans are affluent and perhaps are working in that same stockbroking firm and sharing a Corona with you over Friday night drinks. They set themselves apart by their efforts to stand out by conforming as furiously, and conspicuously, as possible.
