The Chinese elephant massacre in Africa: Extinction looms

Africa's elephants are being massacred, at a rate estimated of 100 per day. Tanzania is among the worst hit.

New book: Unmarked Graves: Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia

The book takes a long perspective on the violence, looking at the rise of the PKI in East Java, the massacres and detention, and the attempts afterwards by remnants of the PKI to regroup and rebuild the party.
