Item description for The Convict Theatres of Early Australia, 1788-1840 by Robert Jordan...

The shadow figures who created the continent's earliest Western entertainment are brought to life in this study of convict theatre in Australia. Analyzed are the impact of the convicts' tastes and origins on the theaters, the temperaments of powerful individuals, and the shifting views of penal servitude. As the centers of power changed, the theatres quickly became fields in which battles for supremacy were fought between convicts and authority and between friends and enemies of the participants. Biographies of the 42 convicts and soldiers known to have been active in the theatres before 1800 are provided in an appendix.

More About Robert Jordan

Robert Jordan Robert Jordan was the pen name of American writer James Oliver Rigney, Jr. (October 17, 1948 – September 16, 2007) He used this pseudonym for fantasy novels, including the bestselling The Wheel of Time series for which he was best known. He also wrote historical fiction as Reagan O'Neal, a western as Jackson O'Reilly, and dance criticism as Chang Lung, and he had ghostwritten an "international thriller" that is still believed to have been written by someone else.

Jordan was born in Charleston, South Carolina. He served two tours in Vietnam (from 1968 to 1970) with the United States Army as a helicopter gunner. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. After returning from Vietnam he attended The Citadel where he received an undergraduate degree in physics. After graduating he was employed by the United States Navy as a nuclear engineer. He began writing in 1977. He was a history buff and enjoyed hunting, fishing, sailing, poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting. He described himself as a "High Church" Episcopalian and received communion more than once a week. He lived with his wife Harriet McDougal, who works as a book editor (currently with Tor Books; she was also Jordan's editor) in a house built in 1797. Responding to queries on the similarity of some of the concepts in his Wheel of Time books with Freemasonry concepts, Jordan admitted that he was a Freemason. However, "like his father and grandfather," he preferred not to advertise, possibly because of the negative propaganda against Freemasonry. In his own words, "no man in this country should feel in danger because of his beliefs."

Robert Jordan lived in Charleston, in the state of South Carolina. Robert Jordan was born in 1948 and died in 2007 and has an academic affiliation as follows - University of New South Wales Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine US.
