Hardy wrote that during appealing proofs 'there is a really excessive measure of unexpectedness, mixed with inevitability and economy'. fascinating Proofs offers a set of exceptional proofs in effortless arithmetic which are enormously based, filled with ingenuity, and succinct.

He proposes in February 1975 that an independent East Timor enter a treaty relationship with Indonesia, giving the country a stake in Timorese security, a device that would remove concerns about security threats while offering Jakarta a way out of the looming impasse now it is becoming clearer that the territory will not be delivered easily into Indonesian hands (Way 2000: Doc. 90, 190).
