The first full-length account of the life and work of Owen Wilkes.
Owen Wilkes (1940–2005) was known throughout the Pacific and across the world as an outstanding researcher on peace and disarmament.
His work —
• exposed plans to build a US Navy satellite tracking station in the Southern Alps
• identified a foreign spy base at Tangimoana (near Bulls)
• led to job offers from leading peace research institutes in Norway and Sweden — and an espionage charge for taking photographs during a cycling holiday
• supported local campaigns against foreign military activity in the Philippines, and for a nuclear-free Pacific.
