"Without eschewing proper historical and scholarly procedures, it is history as narrative...of a kind we tend to associate with fiction."
- Melbourne Age

"...meticulously researched and written with verve."
- Times Literary Supplement

“The Orr Case was Australia's cause celebre of the 1950s and 1960s. Did Professor Sydney Sparkes Orr seduce his eighteen-year-old student as she claimed, or was he framed by a sinister cabal who disliked his politics, as he and his supporters insisted? Was this a case of sexual exploitation or an example of McCarthyism down under? For many people Orr is the antipodean Dreyfus: an innocent victim of intellectual repression and political intrigue. Cassandra Pybus has examined the evidence, including previously unseen documents, and presents a complex and fascinating picture of the professor whose name has become a watchword for intellectual freedom.”
