204 pages, illustrated dustjacket. The dust jacket is lightly rubbed along the edges, and has a 0.25 inch tear at the top of the rear panel. The edges of the text blocks are lightly darkened (I know it's oxymoronic but it describes the condition). In 1830 ten convicts were publicly hanged in Bathurst for launching an uprising against the authorities. Until they were captured by the military, they had the colony in a turmoil. This event, ignored by historians, provides a centrepoint for "House of Bondage", a vivid story of vice and violence in early Australia, of the bitter struggle between the " emancipists" and "exclusives", convicts and settlers, men and nature. And behind these events, suggest the author, was the beginning of a new nation, basically different from the people of the United Kingdom. -- rear fold over blurb Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover).
