Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1990. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. How do Balinese manage to present to the world the clear, bright face, the grace and poise, that they regard as crucial to self-respect and social esteem? How can the anthropologist pass behind the conventions of such a complex culture to recognize what is going on between people, in terms that convey their own experience? Wikan s study of the Indonesian island of Bali is an absorbing debate with previous anthropological interpretations as well as an innovative development of the anthropology of experience. This is indeed an important book, a landmark in studies of Bali and one surely destined to have major theoretical impact on anthropological research well beyond that famous Indonesian island. -Anthony R. Walker, Journal of Asian and African Studies. Seller Inventory # AAH9780226896809
