During the 1860s the new colony of Queensland expanded north and west. New towns meant new prisons, and in the cases of Brisbane, Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Maryborough it also meant the arrival of the spectre of the gallows. This Inside History publication by historian Christopher Dawson looks at the colonial executions that took place during 1860-74.'

This book is an update of the Inside History 'Swinging in the 'Sixties' publication (2010).
