In Harlots, Hussies, & Poor Unfortunate Women, Edith M. Ziegler recounts the history of British convict women involuntarily transported to Maryl& in the 18th century.

Great Britain's forced transportation of convicts to colonial Australia is well known. Less widely known is Britain's earlier program of sending convicts - including women - to North America. Many of these women were assigned as servants in Maryl&. Contemporary readers & scholars will be fascinated by Ziegler's explanation of how gender-influenced punishments were meted out to women & often ensnared them in Britain's system of convict labor.

Ziegler depicts the methods & operation of the convict trade & sale procedures in colonial markets. She describes the places where convict servants were deployed & highlights the roles these women played in colonial Maryl& & their contributions to the region's society & economy. Ziegler's research also sheds light on escape attempts & the lives that awaited those who survived servitude.

Ziegler has masterfully researched the penumbra of associated documents & accounts to reconstruct the worlds of 18th-century Britain & colonial Maryl& & the lives of these unwilling American settlers.
