Product description

Review

"Jarratt’s patchwork of individual stories makes for a far more complex, contradictory and interesting picture than the standard journalistic cliche of paradise lost."  - Sydney Morning Herald

"a work that Bali deserves and that honours it." - Weekend West

"a valuable short history for those wanting a richer experience." - Adelaide Advertiser

Product Description

For a century now, Bali has been the subject of a beautiful mythology created by movies and music, but there are few factual accounts of its transformation from besieged peasant colony to booming tourist mecca. Bali: Heaven and Hell
is a tale begging to be told - a story of survival in the face of genocide, natural disaster, terrorism, cultural imperialism and corruption on a grand scale. Go behind the smiling face presented to generations of tourists and expats with Phil Jarratt, the award-winning author of over 20 books including Surfing Australia: A Complete History of Surfboard Riding in Australia and That Summer at Boomerang. Phil has first-hand experience of the glorious island at the morning of the world, having spent the past 40 years falling in and out of love with our favourite holiday destination.

Jarratt weaves a page-turning story of treachery, deceit, debauchery and wholesale slaughter, set against the idyllic backdrop of a paradise on Earth, then cleverly segues into a modern-day tale of jaw-dropping surf, karma, sexual abandon, and a fusion of East and West that created the modern tourist hot spot.
David Hill, Chairman, National Geographic Channels US
