For anyone interested in the convicts and their legacy in Western Australia, this issue of Studies in Western Australian History is not to be missed. It contains articles addressing the journey of the convicts to the colony, detailing case studies highlighting different aspects of the convict experience, demonstrating the legacy of the convicts' labor in building the colony, discussing the surprising lack of debate and research into the convict era in Western Australia, and supplying reference and research tools to assist anyone wishing to delve into the archives to trace a convict themselves. A list of the latest in academic research produced between 1997 and 2005 on an extraordinary range of Western Australian history topics is also included in this volume. pp. 165 illusts #0318/0420
