Event Details

What do you expect when graduating with a science degree? To disarm militia in war-torn Mogadishu? To search out Iraq’s elusive weapons of mass destruction? Do you wonder what a spy does?

Former Australian intelligence officer and author Rod Barton will be in conversation with Michael Brissenden about his new memoir The Life of a Spy.

Rod Barton is a former Australian intelligence officer. Since the first Gulf War, his unique expertise has been sought by the CIA, the Australian government and the United Nations. His first book was The Weapons Detective- The Inside Story of Australia's Top Weapons Inspector, and his second is The Life of A Spy- An Education in Truth, Lies and Power.
