Burg, who is not identified, describes tax revolts beginning in first- century China, Babylon in the second millennium BCE, and Rome at the turn of the era to recent ballot measures in California. He includes many disturbances for which tax was merely one, and often a minor, element in the dissatisfaction. Both the chapters and the entries within them are arranged chronologically, but are also indexed. At least one bibliographic reference is provided for each article, citing recent translations and editions when appropriate. Distributed by Taylor and Francis.
