Death Or Liberty: Rebels and Radicals Transported to Australia 1788-1868
In the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the British Government banished their political enemies - viewed with the same alarm as today's 'terrorists' - to the shores of Australia. Criminals and traitors in the eyes of the law, many of these transported political prisoners were heroes and martyrs to their own communities. In Death or Liberty historian Tony Moore brings new life to their stories and restores them to their rightful place in Australian and world history.
