A Brief History Of Bali : Piracy, Slavery, Opium and Guns: The Story of an Island Paradise Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This book tells the story of Bali-the "paradise island of the Pacific"-its rulers and its people, and their encounters with the Western world. Bali is a perennially popular tourist destination.

It is also home to a fascinating people with a long and dramatic history of interactions with foreigners, particularly after the arrival of the first Dutch fleet in 1597.

In this first comprehensive history of Bali, author Willard Hanna chronicles Bali through the centuries as well as the islanders' current struggle to preserve their unique identity amidst the financially necessary incursions of tourism.

Illustrated with more than forty stunning photographs, A Brief History of Bali is a riveting tale of one ancient culture's vulnerability-and resilience-in the modern world.
