  • Résumé

In late-18th-century Britain, people were hanged for petty offences, yet crime was rife. This title tells the story of how Governor Arthur Phillip, despotic ruler of New South Wales, imposed order between the convicts, sailors and native aboriginal tribespeople; and how the 'open-air prison' eventually developed into a vibrant city.
