During the years 1865 to 1915, the British and Dutch delineated colonial spheres and in the process created new frontiers. This book analyzes the development of these frontiers in insular Southeast Asia and inquires into the growth of vast, secret economies based on smuggling forbidden cargo (such as opium, counterfeit currency, and human beings) across the porous new borders.
