Summary Nothing defies cultured Australia's sense of itself more than the bogan - that boorish, racist, drunken, sexist, bethonged, Barnesy-loving embarrassment out there in the back blocks. Part travelogue, part social critique, The Bogan Delusion explores the culture and social landscape of Australia in the 21st century. It reveals that the bogan so widely feared is nothing more than a bogey: a convenient reason for many to never venture beyond the cafe-lined cocoon of the inner city.
