World Within: A Borneo Story
What comes through in this book is that the author was one of the world’s doers par excellence. He was an ornithologist, explorer, journalist, broadcaster, soldier, guerrilla, ethnologist, museum curator, archaeologist, documentarian, film-maker, conservationist, and writer. Having helped found Mass Observation, one of the pioneer organisations for market research, before World War II, he went on during the war to fight behind Japanese lines in Borneo where he spent most of his life until his death. This book not only contains his account of how Borneo was before the white man’s arrival but also his wartime exploits on the island. 349 pages with an index, maps, black and white plates, and line drawings.
