About this item

Knight’s analysis of Australian crime fiction reveals contemporary attitudes about right and wrong, justice and liberty, criminals, and indigenous people, and explores how the genre’s variations can themselves be seen as marking major periods and patterns in the developing national sociocultural narrative. Five chronological chapters feature sections on bushrangers, settlers and squatters, city mysteries, touristic crime fiction, the American private eye model, male private investigators, female police, amateur detectives, and historical crime fiction. The varying treatment of authors and their titles reflects their significance in terms of production and reception in the Australia. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
