human-rights tragedies, will know of the struggles of East Timor, which was taken over by force by Indonesia in the '70s and has been seeking independence ever since. Perhaps as many as 250,000 of the region's 700,000 people have been killed over the past quarter century; East Timor's Roman Catholic prelate, Bishop Barlos Filipe Ximenes Belo, and Jose Ramos Horta, the chief spokesman for its resistance movement, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1996. There seems to be some hope that the departure of Suharto, the longtime Indonesian leader, may create an opportunity for East Timor to reach autonomy and ultimately independence, but international political and economic considerations are ambiguous. So this biography of Bishop Belo and narrative of his nation's struggle is quite timely.   A timely, politically charged biography of Bishop Carlos X. Belo, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1996 for his efforts to end the oppression of the people of East Timor at the hands of the Indonesian military.   In 1975, Indonesia illegally invaded East Timor, until then a Portuguese colony. Since then, an estimated 200,000 persons, nearly one-third of the territory's original population, have perished from war, famine, and killings. Now, after the fall of Indonesia's longtime strongman, General   In the forceful tradition of Nobel laureate Jose Ramos-Horta's FUNU, the present work advocates self-determination for and the urgent need for UN intervention in the former Portuguese colony of east Timor.
