The Banana Tree at The Gate:
A History of Marginal Peoples and Global Markets in Borneo
Michael R Dove
A historical study of the relationship between indigenous people and the outside word pressing in on them. In fact the people of Borneo have been trading their forest products, particularly natural rubber, for hundreds of years. So, Dove, postulates, such communities do not need economic help, but rather to be empowered politically. 332 pages with some black and white photographs, notes, references, an index and an index of plant names.
