Bali: A Paradise Created
bridges the gap between scholarly works and the more popular travel accounts readily available today. It offers an accessible history of this fascinating island and an anthropological study not only of the Balinese, but of the paradise-seekers from all parts of the world who have invaded Bali in ever-increasing numbers over the decades. This authoritative, much-cited work is now updated with new photos and illustrations, a new introduction, and new text covering the past twenty years.
