This volume surveys, compares, and contrasts a range of rural riots in Britain, including land protests, food riots, turnpike disturbances, militia protests, and protests by agricultural labourers. The volume includes seventy-maps which together demonstrate the shifting geography of protest, illustrating how the distribution of protest changed over time and how certain forms of protest changed as Britain developed from a feudal to a capitalist society.
