Summary Bestselling author, columnist, and raconteur Peter FitzSimons takes an explosive journey across Australia, reliving the country's forgotten race riots. In his inimitable style, FitzSimons exposes heroes and villains on a journey that spans more than 170 years, and the breadth of the country. Along the way, he demonstrates how mobs of every ethnicity have transformed our nation.FitzSimons sets out from the sands of Cronulla beach, site of Australia's most notorious recent race riot, to quickly reveal that this riot was no aberration. He visits original riot locations retracing both the social context and the path each mob takes, be they Japanese, British, Timorese, Russians, Italians, Yugoslav, Iranian, or Indigenous Australians.In this shocking, heartfelt, and at times humorous journey, FitzSimons shows that The Great Australian Race Riot is a consistently revealing window into who we are - and what kind of Australia we want to be.Peter starts his surprising journey in colonial Australia, where old world hatreds, gold fever and migrant dreams make race riots critical to our quest for nationhood.
