Issue 42
Welcome to Issue 42 - third issue for 2004.

"The demise of Indonesian studies in Australia is a scandal. When will the nation wake up, lose fear and build bridges? We seem to be an immature, fearful nation that can't even look across a couple of small seas on our northern frontier with understanding and intelligence, let alone with compassion."

Pastor August Fricke


Phillip Mahnken, Sunshine Coast
