Baker (management, U. of Applied Science, Bonn, Germany, and U. of Sichuan, China) examines civil and military unrest in Australia and New Zealand from European colonization to 2005. He describes rioting during the nineteenth century, including the Rum Rebellion and unrest during industrial disputes, such as the Maritime Strike of 1890; military and civil mutinies from 1885 to 1970 such as the New Zealand naval mutiny of 1947; and riots and assassinations and challenges to authority, including race and industrial riots, attacks on parliament, and terrorism. The book does not discuss gang brawls and sieges or most protests and demonstrations. Prison riots are included. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
