Subject outline

Riots and rebellions have been the means for popular protests against injustices, to right wrongs, and influence political events. Peasants in medieval England, African slaves and indigenous peoples in the New World, mariners in pre-modern Europe, and convicted felons in the Australian colonies, all had rebellions. Some - such as the American colonists' rebellions against imperial Spain and England - became major revolutions with lasting national consequences. Others were short-lived uprisings in the face of overwhelming change. Exploring the circumstances surrounding selected rebellions, students study the dynamics of change and continuity in the transformation of pre-industrial communities into the modern industrial world.
