The Indonesian invasion and occupation of East Timor in 1975 was followed by one of the worst crimes against humanity in recent decades. The world's attention was focused on this tiny Southeast Asian country and its titanic struggle for independence. No one was more critical to that struggle than Bishop Carlos Belo, whose efforts for a peaceful resolution of the conflict were rewarded by the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize, the first ever awarded to a Catholic bishop. Arnold Kohen's superb biography of Belo gives us the best available account of recent events in East Timor, an understanding of the issues involved, and the story of one man's heroic attempts to avert catastrophe for his land and his people.
