Punishment in Australian Society (Australian Retrospectives) by Mark Finnane



The convict origins of European settlement in Australia have long attracted the attention of novelists and historians. But what effect have these origins--and Australian society's preoccupation with them-- had on later institutions and modes of punishment? This book explores the question through a study of imprisonment and other forms of punishment in Australia since European settlement. It examines the social, cultural, political, and historiographical aspects of this important subject, and shows how punishment has changed and points to possible changes in the future.
