The East Timor Question

Stephen McCloskey & Paul Hainsworth I B Tauris & Co, 2000

The East Timor Question
East Timor was brutally invaded and occupied by Indonesian military forces in 1975. According to the UN, this resulted in the death of about a third of the population through massacres, starvation and disease.

Against a backdrop of growing popular and political support for the Timorese cause hastened by John Pilger's documentary Death of a Nation: The Timor Conspiracy, 'The East Timor Question' - foreworded by Pilger - sets out to show how grassroots, individual and organisational campaign initiatives have contributed towards justice and independence for the Timorese people.
