What People are Saying About This
Bali's Silent Crisis is an ambitious undertaking that brings new perspectives to recent discussions on the difficult and contradictory situation in which Bali finds itself today, namely: a cultural-studies approach focusing on contests over meaning within a broadly political-economic framework; a gender/sexuality-based critique into the analysis of modern Balinese history; a focus on youth culture, especially in the under-researched areas of Denpasar and Kuta; a revalorization of the role of the 1960s "hippie" travelers in the making of tourist Bali; and, perhaps most importantly an effort to place the traumatic memories of 1965-6 at the center of the analysis of the contradictions of contemporary Balinese culture. As such it has something to say both to established scholars and visitors new to Bali.
