Borneo Transformed: Agricultural Expansion on the
Southeast Asian Frontier
Rodolphe De Koninck & Others (eds)
A collection of articles tracing changes in agricultural practices and their impact in Indonesian and Malaysian Borneo, particularly from the last decade of the 20th century onwards. Whereas during the early years following independence in both countries agriculture was mainly state driven for the purpose of poverty alleviation, the more recent expansion has been driven by private companies for the purpose of maximising profits. At the same time the population in Borneo has increased at a much faster rate than in Indonesia or Malaysia as a whole, putting pressure on employment housing and social services. New Paperback. 216 pages with figures, tables, an index and a few maps.
