Today's most intriguing and evocative imagery is to be found all around us, particularly on the street. In Bali, for example, the streets act as a canvas for a unique culture of images that include hand-painted advertisements, lettering and many other graphic mediums of expression. So powerful is the creativity displayed on Balinese Streets that during a recent working visit to the island, Swiss artist and graphic designer Donald Neuburger, decided to dedicate a book to it. Bali: A jungle of Signs captivates the enormous wealth of images and unique typography that exist on Bali's city streets, especially the hand-crafted letters with their splendid cast shadows and intricate serifs. More art than advertisement these beautifully executed works provide a different perspective of the native culture of this Indonesian island popular with Western tourists and pay homage to its craftsmen.

The Island of Bali—a true paradise is explored in this classic travelogue. From the artists and writers of the 1930s to the Eat, Pray, Love tours so popular today, Bali has drawn hoards of foreign visitors and transplants to its shores. What makes Bali so special, and how has it managed to preserve its identity despite a century of intense pressure from the outside world? Bali: A Paradise Created bridges the gap between scholarly works and more popular travel accounts. It offers an accessible history of this fascinating island and an anthropological study not only of the Balinese, but of the paradise–seekers from all parts of the world who have traveled to Bali in ever–increasing numbers over the decades. This Bali travelogue shows how Balinese culture has pervaded western film, art, literature and music so that even those who've never been there have enjoyed a glimpse of paradise. This authoritative, much–cited work is now updated with new photos and illustrations, a new introduction, and new text covering the past twenty years.

Includes 39 photographs taken by the author during his time in Bali. A young American composer, quite by accident, heard some gramophone records of Balinese gamelan music that were to change his life completely. Such was his fascination that he ‘wanted to hear every gamelan in the countryside’. This book is an account of his stay in Bali just before the Pacific War. A House in Bali merits republication because of its sympathetic and often amusing account of the author’s involvement in Balinese society. While the author’s musical interests take up a considerable part of the narrative, music was itself such an integral part of Balinese life that the reader gets an overall impression of life on the island. Much has been written on the art of Bali and by artists but this is the only narrative by a musician and stands in its own right as a worthwhile period piece.

This album, an extraordinary find, was originally discovered during the tumult of the first days after the liberation. It reveals how two SS photographers documented the arrival of shipments of Jews to the platform in the Birkenau concentration camp, the selection process, and their path to the gas chambers and the crematoria. The photographs also memorialize the piles of possessions left by the Jews which were sorted in the 'Canada' Barracks. They are accompanied by three articles that describe the development of the camp, the Holocaust of Hungarian Jewry, and the story of how the album was found; a fourth focuses on the camera as a historical tool. The 189 pictures, arranged in chronological order and reproduced in this album for the first time, are unusually powerful, not least because 70% of the people shown have been identified.

Late on Saturday, October 12, 2002, two bombs exploded in the heart of the club and bar district of Kuta Beach, Bali's most popular tourist area. The effects of the blasts were devastating. Many were killed, including those from the United States. For Australia, it was one of the most tragic events to occur in peacetime in the last 100 years. For the Balinese, it was tragic. Australian Broadcasting Coporation journalist Alan Atkinson was on holiday with his family when he received the call early on Sunday morning that something catastophic had occurred at Kuta. He was one of the first Western jounalists on the scene. Atkinson kept a diary of his holiday and the days after the bombing. This is a personal account of an extrodinary three weeks.

The Ecology of Java and Bali is a comprehensive ecological survey of two of the most ecologically diverse islands in the Pacific. It also contains the results of original research, interviews and personal experience. It will be useful to resource managers, ecologists and government planners, as well as to all others interested in the region. Java and Bali are the best known of all the islands in the Indonesian archipelago. Nowhere else in the country are ecological issues of such importance, and nowhere else is there a better chance of the major development problems being solved. This is because Java has the greatest concentration of development projects, the densest population, excellent human resources, and the interest of many of the most powerful decision makers. Bali, meanwhile, has the eyes of the world on it as an important tourist destination enjoyed by both domestic and foreign visitors.
