  • Description:

    Borneo, the third largest island located in the middle of Southeast Asia, underwent a turbulent decade in the 1940s that to a large extent brought changes and transformations but at the same time retained continuities. The ugly face of war and all the vicissitudes and uncertainties that it entailed dominated the first half of the decade. When war ended there emerged civil troubles and revolutionary struggles. The war experience had impacts on post-war developments, some leading to tragedy while others triumphed over formidable odds.
