This book shows the Rocks as a place very different from the ususal images of a brutal 'gaol colony'. It was, rather, a preindustrial town, a face-to-face society, marked more by movement and opportunity dialogue and negotiation than by coercion, discipline and punishment. Winner of Premier's Community & Regional History Prize 1998.
