Indonesia’s challenge in the Land of Papua is to provide both justice and welfare to her people and their land. And Papua’s resource wealth hardly guarantees development to her people, as Papua sits at the bottom of Indonesia’s national human development index.

The book is an eyewitness account of Papua written by Bobby Anderson, an American who worked among grassroots indigenous groups in remote parts of Papua. In it he unveils the bitter fact of an almost non-existent state, and the barest of services or protections provided to a people neglected by the modern world, starting with Jakarta. Political issues, separatism, and violence are not the focus of his writing.

The missing links in public services ultimately result in the denial of human security and social justice to Papuans, and this is the main focus of Bobby Anderson’s writing—presented in the spirit of a common humanity, and not blaming, but rather, seeking solutions.
