London. Cambridge. Stock ID #94882

Map, xi + 258pp, notes, bibliography, index, paperback, light wear, a good copy. For centuries Bali has generated provocative and often conflicting images in the minds of ethnographers and travelers alike. Professor Boon places our current understanding of Bali within the context of historical views of Balinese life and religion, beginning with the initial Dutch contacts after 1597. He approaches Balinese culture as a 'social romance' of flexible values and actions keyed to native ideals of an enduring hierarchy. Publisher's description.
