Alexander Maconochie (11 February 1787–25 October 1860) was a Scottish naval officer, geographer, and penal reformer. In 1836 he sailed to the convict settlement at Hobart in Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) as private secretary to the Lieutenant-Governor Sir John Franklin. Here he wrote a report strongly critical of the state of prison discipline. The convict system, being fixated on punishment alone, released back into society crushed, resentful and bitter expirees, in whom the spark of enterprise and hope was dead.

'Thoughts on Convict Management' was this report. It was written for the purpose of making recommendations about the way convicts should be disciplined, viewed and treated, focussing more on moral influences rather than physical aspects.

This volume is set out in two parts. The first section focuses on the management of convicts. The second section contains miscellaneous information, such as information on crime in, and emigration to Van Diemen's Land, introduction of Representative Government and Management of Aborigines.

This ebook is a the same as the CD version from Archive Digital Books Australasia which is available from Gould Genealogy & other retailers.
