Sociology of Motorcycle Gang
I made fieldwork about a motorcycle gang in Hiroshima and analyzed
the conflict between the social and political control over them and
their resistance to it for the construction of a modern society’s
theory in the Master's course of graduate school, Hiroshima Kokusai
Gakuin University. I want to make the same fieldwork again in Tokyo
region and to refine the power theory which I could not develop
sufficiently in the Master’s course. And I want to study on the
youth’s identity and the relationship between the youth’s growth and
