This vintage book contains Miguel Covarrubias’s 1937 work, “The Island of Bali”. Comprising a wealth of information on day-to-day life, culture, manners, and religion on the 'Island of the Gods', this volume furnishes an authentic 'bird’s-eye view' of Balinese society. It is highly recommended for those with an interest in the subject. Miguel Covarrubias (1904 - 1957) was a Mexican artist, caricaturist, ethnologist and historian - famed for his illustrations and theatre work. Many antiquarian texts such as this, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

About the Author:

Miguel Covarrubias (1904-1957) was born in Mexico City and was an author, painter, caricaturist, and professor of art history at the National School of Anthropology in Mexico City.

Adrian Vickers was born in Tasmania, New South Wales, in 1958 and moved to Sydney to undertake a degree at the University of Sydney, where he was awarded a BA (Hons) in 1980 and a PhD in 1987. His PhD thesis, undertaken in the Indonesian and Malayan Studies Department, involved extensive research in Bali, Jakarta, the Netherlands and the USA. Vickers has taught Indonesian history, language and culture at the University of Sydney and for the Workers' Education Association, and written many articles on Balinese art, literature and history. He is Professor of Southeast Asian Studies, University of Sydney.

Synopsis:

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
