Audio: If you leave us here we will die

A conversation with Geoffrey Robinson - former political affairs officer with the United Nations mission in East Timor (UNAMET) and current history professor at UCLA - talks about his new book with ABC Radio National's Late Night Live host, Phillip Adams. Robinson talks about "the thinking within the UN and the international community at the time," and provides "a vivid personal account of what he witnessed in East Timor. Robinson also addresses the enduring question of how best to seek justice for the crimes of the past."

His new book ""If You Leave Us Here, We Will Die": How Genocide Was Stopped in East Timor" was recently published by Princeton University Press.
