Product description

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.

Printed in Malaysia by SRM Production Services.

First Published 1965, this second edition dated 1994.
