About Book

(Brian Fitzpatrick, rev.)
'. . . merits being 'prescribed' reading in every Australian school, and self-prescribed reading for every Australian citizen' Brian Fitzpatrick

Book Description
In Australia's folk memory, one event will forever stand as the great example of courage and resistance to authority: the Eureka Stockade. Here is the only full-length eyewitness account of the Stockade, published a year after the uprising, written by an Italian revolutionary who wrote the book to 'set the record straight'. This edition is introduced by Tom Keneally - writer, republican and upholder of human rights. To him, the events were 'a practical assertion of fair-goism which, at the cost of some anguish and death, produced good results' for the Australian people.
