Note Editore

New South Wales was from its origins uniquely connected with the criminal law. The first volume of this study (Woods, 2002) covered the period from 1788 until Federation - convicts, gold rushes, wild bushrangers and equally wild legislators. This second volume continues the still-fascinating story from 1901 (when the colony became a state) through until mid-20th century, when the death penalty was effectively abolished. Once again the author draws on his wide experience of the criminal law as an academic, law reformer, barrister and judge to describe the development of the law in its social, economic and political contexts.
