No Country for Revolutionaries: Italian Communists in Sydney 1971–1991: Their Activities, Policies and Liaison with the Italian and Australian Communist Parties

By Gianfranco Cresciani

Between 1971 and 1991 the Italian Communist Party endeavoured to mobilise Italian migrants in Australia in order to extend its influence and power, attract their vote and defend their rights. Its establishment of an ‘autonomous’ Federation in Sydney, resulted in a troubled relationship with the Communist Party of Australia and in grassroots surveillance of Italian migrants by ASIO. This book tells their story during the Cold War.
