Well-respected academic and former police officer, Dr Jann Karp, spent four years travelling with and writing about interstate truck drivers to discover the truth about life on the road. The result is Truckies, a rare passenger eye’s view of the drivers’ world that tells their story with sympathy and insight. Truckies reveals the strength and even heroism of the people who embrace this dangerous and sometimes isolating work, overturning common misconceptions while never flinching from some of the hard truths of the trucking life

“A unique and seminal work that will dispel the myth of ‘truckies’ as ‘irresponsible cowboys’. A must read for policy makers, union officials, and anyone interested in the hidden inner-workings of complex and dangerous industries.”
Dr Xanthe Mellett, Forensic Criminologist
