Catholic Church and East Timor – Hilton Deakin Minimize
Dr James and Professor Therese D’Orsa have worked closely with Bishop Hilton Deakin to write up his recollections of his involvement in East Timor’s struggles for independence from the 1970s.

The Yarra Institute is looking for a major publisher for this landmark work, which will be ready by publication later in 2014.
