‘Remarkable and highly readable.’ – Michael Kirby
In this highly readable social history, Frank Bongiorno uses striking examples to chart the changing sex lives of Australians. He shows how an overwhelmingly male penal colony gave rise to a rough and ready culture: the scarcity of women made for strange bedfellows, and the female minority was both powerful and vulnerable.
Enjoy a glass of champagne upon arrival, the comfort of a hearty winter meal and enjoy a lively conversation with author and associate professor of history at the Australian National University Frank Bongiorno
Frank Bongiorno is associate professor of history at the Australian National University and the co-author of A Little History of the Australian Labor Party (2011). He was the London correspondent for Inside Story and has been a regular contribu¬tor to the Canberra Times.
