Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The terror campaign by pro-Indonesian armed groups before, during, and after East Timor's independence referendum in 1999 was a blatant challenge to the international community as many of the acts of murder, political intimidation, destruction, and mass deportation took place before the eyes of the world. Yet still the ultimate responsibility has been denied and obscured. Masters of Terror provides an authoritative analysis and documentation of the brutal operations carried out by the Indonesian army and its East Timorese allies. The authors carefully assemble detailed accounts of the actions of the major Indonesian officers and East Timorese militia commanders accused of gross human rights violations. This indispensable work explores a horrific frontal attack on democracy and calls for the establishment of an international tribunal for crimes against humanity in East Timor.

Book News Annotation:

In seven essays, Tanter (Nautilus Institute, Berkeley) et al. provide accounts of the human rights violations perpetrated by the Indonesian Armed Forces and its East Timorese allies in 1999, leading up to the UN-supervised referendum. The presentation includes those who were responsible for the terror and evidence against them, as well as intelligence material from the Australian government and the US war crimes case Doe v. Lumintang. A report by Indonesia's Commission of Investigation into Human Rights Violation in East Timor from 2000 is included. The book was originally published by the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National U. in its Canberra Papers series. Contributors are scholars and a journalist from Australia and the US working in Indonesian affairs, strategic and defense studies, Asian studies, Indonesian military analysis, and history.
