A clear, honest, thought-provoking account of punishment and imprisonment in Australia, from the 'open jail' of early Sydney to today's detention centres, by our most respected author/illustrator of non-fiction for young people.

Our prisons, detention centres and camps have housed convicts, prisoners of war, Aborigines, women, children, refugees and asylum seekers. Brutal floggings, hangings, the stocks and the treadmill are part of the story; so are pardons, evening classes and picnics for prisoners. Packed with information and prompting fundamental questions about our society, Australia Locked Up is stern but illuminating reading.
