Wilson (U. of Ballarat, Australia) examines decommissioned Australian prisons currently operating as tourist sites, and questions whether the history of these institutions are being represented with accuracy and balance. By providing the context of Australia's origins as a penal colony, the author analyzes the connection between the narrative interpretations, the need to generate income and the truth. Written with a general Australian audience in mind, this book brings up issues and concerns about national identity, and how these attitudes are reflected in the current penal system.
