Recommended Reading: East Timor: Testimony by Elaine Briere, essays by Noam Chomsky and others

Between the Lines, 2004

The people of East Timor have endured the brutality of colonization and invasion, to emerge into the uncertain light of nationhood. At this point of transition, through stunning images and insightful texts, East Timor: Testimony presents the whole gamut of a people's history, culture, and aspirations. Nine authors, including renowned investigator Noam Chomsky, have contributed original essays. Sixty-four of photographer Elaine Briere's eloquent photos, richly reproduced as duotones, form the core of this haunting, informative book.

Elaine Briere is an internationally recognized photojournalist and filmmaker whose work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan. Her 1997 film Bitter Paradise: The Sell-Out of East Timor won Best Political Documentary at the Toronto HOT DOCS! Festival in 1997. She lives in Vancouver.
