AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This chapter deals with five connected matters: the life and times of Thomas Brooks; the veracity or otherwise of Passages as a source in reconstructing this life; an attempt to find who the author of Passages was (or at the very least who he wasn't); and the contexts for the public emergence of this "convict voice" in the 1850s. Finally there is the question of analysing such a narrative, as "distinct from the empirical quarrying" of it.' p.32
