In this lively, well-researched study, Foxhall examines how convicts, emigrants and ships' surgeons created medical knowledge at sea in the first half of the 19th century. Focusing on the route between the ports of Britain and Ireland and the Australian colonies, it makes a significant contribution to the histories of medicine, penal reform, colonialism and immigration.
