Abstract

book reviews ences and goods passing in both directions. Interestingly, Barham sees the development of large double-outrigger canoes in Torres Strait as an endogenous development. Aboriginal interactions with Macassans are the subject of Clarke's paper. She questions Macknight's recent chronology for Macassan sites on the Australian mainland and argues for an active aboriginal response to these contacts. Fox and Pannell deal with historic-contemporary developments in maritime eastern Indonesia. Both are useful for reminding us of the complexity of the region. Fox notes that the first state-like structures, those in Ternate and Tidore, were located in a non-Austronesian west Papuan language area. Interaction across the entire region had also occurred in terms of Islam and the use of Malay as a lingua franca. Pannell discusses the neo-colonial experience of indigenous peoples from east Indonesia in terms of the disappearance or extinction of maritime societies. The return of the journal Modern Quaternary Research in Southeast Asia from the Dutch publishing house A. A. Balkema is to be welcomed. This journal was a significant source of archaeological, environmental, and anthropological information for the region at a time when there were few scholars and fewer outlets for publication. The current volume 16
