Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A timely contribution to the geographical literature. 'Borneo' is a welcome contribution to the literature, for it draws attention to a little-understood, little-studied region that is undergoing dramatic socioeconomic and environmental change." --Geographical Reviews
