Now, after the fall of Indonesia's longtime strongman, General Suharto, East Timor is in the public eye and seems on the verge of winning independence. No one has been more crucial to this development than Bishop Belo, the first Catholic bishop ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. In From the Place of the Dead, journalist Arnold Kohen has written the first full-length biography of Bishop Belo. Kohen, who has had unparalleled access to Bishop Belo for the past five years, provides not only a penetrating portrait of the Timorese prelate, but also the definitive account of a tortured country and the politics in which it is embroiled."@en ;
