AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In October 2001, over 400 asylum-seekers departed from Indonesia in a grossly overcrowded, rickety boat bound for Australia. Somewhere between the two countries the boat sank with a huge loss of life - 353 of the asylum seekers drowned. This is an examination of the event, the author's effort to spark a full-powers inquiry.
