At the Edges of States: Dynamics of State Formation in the Indonesian Borderlands. A decade of (intermittent) field work underpins this study of the perceptions, dynamics and functioning of state in the borderlands of West Kalimantan with Sarawak. Among the many dimensions discussed are: the central governments and decentralising trends; the colonial legacy; insurgency and counter-insurgency; timber issues; cross-border patronage and exploitation issues; border controls; ethnic sentiments; and zones of autonomy. With black-and-white photographs, timeline, glossary, bibliography, extensive annotations and index.
