Introduction by Noam Chomsky

This book tells the story of East Timor's heroic struggle against impossible odds and explains why you so seldom hear about it in the western media.

Synopsis:

In 1975, after centuries of Portuguese rule, tiny East Timor — population 690,000 — declared its independence. Nine days later, Indonesia — current population 200 million plus — invaded. Since that day, well over 200,000 East Timorese have died.

Noam Chomsky calls it "perhaps the greatest death toll relative to the population since the Holocaust". Yet Indonesia's actions are supported, diplomatically and economically, by the United States, Canada, Australia and most other western countries.

In this fully updated second edition, Matthew Jardine and Chomsky tell the story of East Timor's heroic struggle against impossible odds, and explain why you so seldom hear about it in the western media. They also suggest ways you can help these long-suffering people gain the peace, freedom and justice they deserve.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 77-87) and index.
