Summary In July 1949 a brilliant young Australian physicist and member of the Communist party, Tom Kaiser, who had just completed his PhD research at Oxford, took part in a demonstration outside Australia House in London. Within days, he was caught up in a web of cold war intrigue stretching from Canberra to London and Washington. At stake was Australia's bid to become a nuclear weapons state - and the activities of a Soviet spy ring at the highest levels of the Australian government
