Abstract:This thesis addresses the subject of military riot control, in India, Egypt, and Palestine, between the World Wars. It examines how the British conducted these operations, and the structure of law and military doctrine that guided them. The thesis further attempts to gauge the full extent of the force employed, by counting casualties. There is also a painstaking examination of the training regime, as well as the way in which the British civil and military authorities analysed their riot control work, and their willingness to take on new methodologies and technologies. Military riot control is a subject of perennial interest, particularly in the current international environment. The topic thus has a contemporary importance, throwing light on current practices, pointing up likely areas of organisational failure, and uncovering the origins and principles that lie behind much modem military practice. The topic also has a larger, historical interest. It has been a point of debate for many years as to whether the British Empire relied upon force to sustain it, and if so, in what degree. Many historians have registered an opinion on this matter, but in most cases an opinion is all that they have had to offer. As should be obvious, the preceding statement implies that many previous historical analyses of the British employment of force have been largely impressionistic. Few writers have attempted to grapple with the detailed mass of after-action reports in an attempt to derive a definitive answer to the question of just how much force was exerted in riot control in the inter-war period. Prior historiography has, broadly, fallen into one of two positions colonial era and immediately post-colonial era writers have usually asserted that what force there was highly controlled and strictly proportionate to the necessity of a given case, while more modern writers have asserted, with little better evidence, that force was excessive. The thesis makes a sustained attempt to resolve the question of what casualties were caused by the security forces in riots in the study period. A definitive answer has proven elusive, but at the least, solid minimum numbers have been established.
