'The Hikayat Banjar', a 17th-century native court chronicle from Southeast Borneo, characterizes the irresistibility of natural resource wealth to outsiders as 'the banana tree at the gate'. This title employs this phrase as a root metaphor to frame the history of resource relations between the indigenous people of Borneo and the world system.
