From the 1990 edition:
Twenty-one years ago, a rigged "Act of Free Choice" condemned the people of West Papua to one of the most brutal forms of colonisation at the hands of Indonesia. The United Nations, which oversaw the limited posting, accepted the fraud and in doing so betrayed the principles on which it was founded. The People of West Papua have suffered ever since - physically and culturally.
Six years before the 'Free' choice, in May 1963, Indonesia had taken over West Papua after the United Nations had nominally been in control for a few months. They had been put there through the influence of US President John F Kennedy, who had already 'persuaded' the Dutch to allow temporary UN control of the colony it was preparing for Independence.
As a result, the Melanesian people of West Papua, different in race, religion, language, culture, appearance and, very importantly, in the use of land from the Indonesians, have seen their country plundered and their people massacred.
This book is in excellent condition throughout.
