Editorial Reviews

?This book expands on the themes of the popular Odyssey film of the same name, for which Stephen Lansing acted as writer and ethnographic consultant. The result here is a wonderfully readable introduction to the history and culture of Bali, and a lively excursion into the anthropology of art. The author moves deftly between historical and ethnographic data, taking us from the first centuries of Indian influence on the island up through the recent tourist invasion.... The author's ability to move easily between the ideological and material attributes of the temple system should make this work of great interest to students of comparative religion and politics. The author also raises important questions for the anthropology of art.... A well-written and important monograph, one that will be enjoyed both by specialists and the general reader.?-American Anthropologist
