In the shadows: the spy in Australian literary and cultural history

Bennett, Bruce


"Spying is eternal," says John le Carre's George Smiley, at the end of his career. Yet certain political and historical events seem to bring espionage to the surface. Such were the events of 9/11 and its various aftermaths. Was there ever a halcyon time before espionage? Some pristine paradise before the eye of God, or one of his proxies, kept watch on the garden and reported on activities? The purpose here is to sketch a map of an emergent field of investigation.
