LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Melbourne University Press, Melbourne - reprint edition ISBN:0522844979, 1995. softcover, 5½" x 8½. Book in VERY GOOD condition. Twenty-five figures in text (photos, drawings, charts, etc), with notes, bibliography, and index. In this provocative and well-argued book, Alan Frost challenges many powerful images held by Australians about the first dozen years of European settlement there. Among those the author refutes are: 1) overcrowded and unhealthy English prison hulks, 2) Botany Bay as a cheap solution to the convict problem, 3) a poorly equipped and managed First Fleet, and 4) callous treatment of Aborigines, and the unleashing of smallpox among them.
