""Between Frontiers" is a marvelous historical ethnography of the Southeast Asian borderland, situated between Sarawak Malaysia and Indonesian Borneo.  This monograph leads the reader straight into an exhilarating world of maritime Malay merchants, Chinese coolies, Dayak swidden cultivators, guerilla fighters, and Sambas rubber smugglers who have shaped the local peripheries of the old Sarawak colony over the past 140 years.

"Between Frontiers" is highly recommended to academics, students, or anyone else who is interested in the history of borderlands, nationalism, and transnationalism in a Southeast Asian context."
