While the world was focused on the horrors in Cambodia, under the radar of extensive media attention another genocide was occurring in East Timor, only in this case the perpetrator was an ally of the USA: Indonesia. This little book provides an excellent survey of the events and the heroic struggle of the East Timorese to gain independence.
