From Booklist:

The 1996 Nobel Peace Prize pointed the world spotlight on East Timor, the Catholic, Portuguese-speaking province that Indonesia has been trying to suppress since invading it in 1975. Timely though this book is, it bears no trace of a rush job. It is predominantly the memoir of a 33-year-old Timorese man with supplementary matter by others, including a 250-word endorsement from prize co-winner JoseRamos Horta. Pinto was only 11 when the Timorese turmoil erupted after the fall of Portugal's empire. His family supported the independence party. They fled before the Indonesian takeover, and Pinto became an adolescent guerrilla, then opted for teaching before rejoining the underground in 1983. He pulled off a brave exploit by organizing a demonstration at a papal mass in 1989. Later, he was arrested, tortured, and, a hunted man after an appalling massacre in 1991, escaped into exile. Unbowed, with deep faith in his country and religion, Pinto adds the substance of suffering to the publicity generated by the Nobel Prize. Gilbert Taylor
