Timor's Anschluss Indonesian and Australian Policy in East Timor 1974-76
|Author: ||Roff, Sue|
Establishes from Indonesian newspaper sources the degree of intent that lay behind Indonesia's brutal invasion of the territory on December 7, 1975. Reviews Australian acquiescence in the anschluss in the light of the Timor Gap negotiations which resulted in a treaty between Indonesia and Australia to expropriate Timor's undersea oil. This is essential reading for those charged with completing the Secretary-General's mandate, and for all scholars who are interested in the second generation of self-determination claims.
