Chemical weapons deployed. Choppers taken out. Tens of thousands of people displaced. Communications repressed. The West Papuan independence movement has reignited, and Indonesian troops are cracking down. In The Road, John Martinkus gives a gripping, up-to-date account of the province's descent into armed conflict and suppression. Replete with vivid detail and new information, his revelatory work of journalism shows how and why a highlands road led to an uprising, and where this might all lead.
