Laffin, J. (2008). Matthew Beovich: A biography. 1-382. Australia: Wakefield Press.
The son of a Croatian migrant, Matthew Beovich became one of the most significant leaders in the Catholic Church in Australia, at a time when it was experiencing rapid expansion due to post-war immigration. He guided his diocese through numerous Church reforms, and faced the challenges arising from the political and social changes of the period, including Santamaria's secret organisation the 'Movement' and the 1950s split in the Australian Labor Party.
