Lindquist (social anthropology, Stockholm U.) describes how the entry of Singapore into global trade has impacted the nearby Indonesian island of Batam, where cheap labor and lax government policies towards the environment and labor protection have encouraged multinational corporations to site factories. The author has been traveling to Batam for over 10 years, and his investigations explore a multitude of responses to the stresses of the economic and social situations there, including drug use, prostitution, and pursuit of fantasy.
