ASIO maintained a vast library of files on half a million citizens, most of whom were never a threat to Australia's security. Through meticulous research, Michael Komesaroff has been able to sift through a multitude of records which were kept on his family, and discover why. This is not only an account of one family's activities, but more broadly, a history of the widespread fear of the presence and influence of communist sympathisers in Australia in the twentieth century.

A well researched and absorbing record of a respected family highlighting its pursuit by ASIO. A great read. - Bernard Rechter (former director of the Monash University Centre for Jewish Civilization).
