The longhouses of Borneo often puzzled early European travellers to the region because there seemed to be little purpose to families living together rather than in separate dwellings. In this book the author, with the help of colonial records and oral history, pieces together the history of the building and the communities that lived in them. One surprising result of his research was that neither the structures nor their inhabitants were permanent, but almost as impermanent and mobile as contemporary societies. Near Fine Hardback in a New Dust Jacket. First Edition. 345 pages with a bibliography, indices and figures.
