Publishers Description: Well-known Australians - mavericks, activists, movers and shakers - reflect on their own ASIO files. In this moving, funny and sometimes chilling book, leading Australians open their ASIO files and read what the state's security apparatus said about them. Writers from across the political spectrum including David Stratton, Phillip Adams, Peter Cundall, Michael Kirby, Gary Foley and Anne Summers confront - and in some cases reclaim - their pasts. Reflecting on the interpretations, observations and proclamations that anonymous officials make about your personal life is not easy - at least for some. Yet we see outrage mixed with humour and writers reflect on the way their political views have - or haven't - changed. Surrounded by influential Australians and piles of paper from our recent past, activist, politician and writer Meredith Burgmann has produced a book where those being watched look right back.
