A Study of the Overthrow of Governor Bligh by John Macarthur and the New South Wales Corps.The 'Rum Rebellion', apart from being an act of mutiny, was also the culmination of a massive confrontation between two strong-willed and powerful men - Bligh, the strong-willed disciplinarian, and John Macarthur, wealthy merchant, pastoralist, and ex-member of the Corps.
Dr H. V. Evatt, High Court Judge, Cabinet Minister and renowned advocate, was one of Australia's best known and most distinguished statesmen. In 'Rum Rebellion' he brought a brilliant and highly literate mind to bear on the complex problems surrounding one of the most controversial issues in Australian history.
