How to Make Trouble and Influence People: Pranks, Hoaxes, Graffiti & Political Mischief-Making from Across Australia



How to Make Trouble and Influence People is a revelation of Australia's radical past through more than 500 tales of Indigenous resistance, convict revolts and escapes, picket line hijinks, student occupations, street art, media pranks, urban interventions, squatting, blockades, banner drops, guerrilla theatre and billboard liberation. In this masterpiece of radicalism, Australian activists have been interviewed about their opposition to racism, war, economic exploitation and religious conservatism. Every act of mischief is tied together by humour and creativity.
