A new edition of Lloyd Robson's classic study of the origins and crimes of Australia's convict settlers which introduced a valuable core of hard facts into a discussion previously dominated by anecdote and polemic. Working from a statistical sampling of convicts, and writing with sympathetic insight, Lloyd Robson examined the convicts' records: their social and economic background, age, religion and occupation; and individual cases.

About the Author:

Before his death in 1990, Dr Robson inspired teachers and students alike in the department of History at the University of Melbourne with his incisive vision of Australia.

Review:

' an air of authority...which is happily warmed in his case by a deep sense of humanity, by great wit and by compassion... Dr. Robson has the answer to all the questions one could reasonably put to a man writing on such a subject.' -- Professor Manning Clark, Radio Australia
