Summary

This book examines Borneo, both British Borneo Brunei, Sarawak and North Borneo and Dutch Borneo in the period 1945-50. Following the Japanese Occupation the likely future status of Borneo was not at all clear, and the book discusses the various factions and powers, both local and international, who were contending for control in this period. It examines the effects of the Japanese surrender, the impact of the subsequent interregnum and Australian and British administrations, the reassertion of Dutch control, the struggle for Indonesian independence, and movements for local autonomy. It charts developments throughout this volatile and uncertain period, up to the point at which the newly independent Republic of Indonesia emerged and a more settled period began.
