"Noboru Ishikawa’s magnificent, trail-blazing book, Between Frontiers: Nation and Identity in a South East Asian Borderland … is all about the borders and frontiers that slice up Borneo, the people who have to live around them, and the daily negotiations that take place on them.  Noboru conducted extensive fieldwork in the villages on the border demarcating Malaysian Sarawak and Indonesian Kalimantan to see how the people lived the experience of being on a borderland … The result of his work is a marvelous fusion of historiography and anthropology."
