Abstract

This thesis is concerned with the Menzies Government and ASIO's responses to the threat posed by the Communist inspired peace movement during the early Cold War period, between 1949 and 1959. The thesis will particularly focus on the Government's efforts to restrict the movements of peace activists through the imposition of travel controls, most notably passport bans.
