THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT TAX REVOLTS AND REVOLTING TAXES Throughout history, people have grumbled about unfair taxes. In some instances, however, the populace has risen up, in greater or lesser numbers, and forcefully expressed their displeasure over their government’s insistence on separating them from their hard earned cash. The stories in this book range from tragic to laughable and from Ancient Rome to Modern Day, but all of them shine an unmercifully harsh and penetrating light on that most reviled, and often corrupt, institution in human history ... taxation.
