Indonesia's Secret War in Aceh
An eye-opening, firsthand account of Indonesia's campaign of terror in Aceh. This is the latest from acclaimed journalist John Martinkus, whose first book, A Dirty Little War, told the definitive story of East Timor's passage to independence. In this vivid, eye-witness account, Martinkus lifts the lid on the brutal, undeclared war in Aceh. Like East Timor, Aceh wants independence but it is paying a terrible price, and since September 11 things have got much worse. This book gets inside a conflict that is happening on Australia's doorstep - but no one seems to care.
