ABC. Sydney, Australia. 1998. First Edition - ISBN-0-7333-0701-9;. pages 352 pages, index; 4 maps; photographic stiffened cardcover, protected: 23.5cm x 15.5cm; fine condition;. ISBN-0-7333-0701-9 - In March 1997, Papua New Guinea faced its worst postwar crisis since independence (1975) when elements of the PNG Defence Force revolted against national government plans to use foreign mercenaries to end the 10 year old civil war on Bougainville and reopen the island's rich copper mine. The hiring of the mercenaries (mainly African), and their capture and expulsion by troops loyal to Brigadier-General Jerry Singirok, threw PNG into extraordinary turmoil and led to the undoing of the Chan government. Public disgust with corruption provided the backdrop to Singirok's dramatic military intervention, the ramifications of which will be felt for years to come. Australia was caught completely unaware. It was not until several weeks after the contract had been signed and the mercenaries were already in PNG that the Australian Government and it's private investors realised what was going on. The Sandline Affair is an authoritative and demystifying examination of one of the most troubled events in the Western Pacific's history. Two inquiries into the Sandline deal have produced 7,000 pages of transcript. Based on a thorough sifting of the evidence and ABC correspondent Sean Dorney's detailed interviews and incomparable knowledge of the events and individuals involved. The Sandline Affair is an authoritative and demystifying examination of one of the most troubled events in the region's history. Out-of-print. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
