Reviews

"[A] powerful and moving reminder of the horrors visited on East Timor."--The Economist

"[A]n unlikely combination of the sort of in-depth analysis expected of a dissertation and the sensationalism of a true-crime story."--Foreign Affairs

"A magnificent memorial to the people of East Timor and a damning indictment of international powers, like the United States." --Amy Goodman

"[A] remarkable book . . . "--Noam Chomsky
