Funu: The Unfinished Saga of East Timor

by Jose Ramos-Horta - £16.99  Red Sea Press (1996)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780932415158 | ISBN 10: 0932415156

"The pathos of East Timor lies in the fact that in an age of instant communications, in which the victims' grief is seen and heard around the world, argued over by statesmen and kept alive in the public mind which allows hope for redress - its suffering is muted by indifference, remoteness, and underdevelopment... Mr. Ramos-Horta's book presents a modest, more-in-sorrow-than-anger account of his bitter experience of the world's indifference to Indonesia's aggression."
(from The New York Times Book Review, upon the original publication of 'Funu' in 1987.)
"The Red Sea Press was proud to publish Jose Ramos-Horta's Funu [Tetun for "war"] in 1987 and, though the struggle is still unfinished ten years later, we are even more gratified to reissue this account of his life and efforts. We hope that this republication, like the Prize, will refocus international attention on the tiny, subjugated, half-island, so that the long "unfinished saga" soon includes East Timor's hard-won sovereignity."
(The Red Sea Press.)
