Clumsy word picking and abundant typo error. But, positive side of such bad work is revealing me with the fact that there are two type of translators. The first one is those who translates by loving the book, understands the context of the book's substance, and presents it with heart.

A great source of insight into life in Indonesia during the 16th Century. A little dry at times perhaps but well worth the reading. Dec 30, Evi Rezeki rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiksi , sejarah , terjemahan. Banyak hal yang saya dapatkan dari buku ini.

Not quite my cup of tea, as Covarrubias's writing and tone are strictly academic. But "Island of Bali" is nonetheless an impressive feat of anthropological reporting, and Covarrubias's deep affinity for Balinese culture shines through in his attention to detail. A challenging read for those unaccustomed to s ethnographic literature present company included , but the rewards make this book a worthwhile endeavor. Omgosh Miguel this is the detail I was after.
This is the book to read if you love Bali, but don't associate yourself with the travellers who wear beer labeled singlet tops and think nasi goreng is the only edible dish and bargain so low it's embarrassing. Bali is rich and so magical you can actually feel the magic. Explore it or just explore this book. Either way it's a trip.

This is a detailed book on the people of Bali from a hundred years ago. It must have been a sight to see a culture transition from ancient ways to modernity. Even when coercion by the Dutch caused a negative effect the witnessing and documenting of the events must have been interesting. Jan 01, Peter rated it it was amazing.
One of the best books about Bali. Sep 10, Harry Chua rated it it was amazing. For those who fall in love with Bali, this is the most authoritative book on Bali and Balinese. The author puts us through back in time, all his sketches and drawings are so beautiful. Aug 19, Blythe rated it it was amazing. Thorough and splendid account of Bali culture. It made my travels feel very personal. It was written a long time ago in reference to trips he made in the s, but it almost seems like the people governing Bali read it and took his advice to heart, because when I visited, they had clearly placed framework to allow them to grow with the times, but preserve the essential parts of their culture, particularly their humor, cooperation, religion, and their incredible and vast artistic talent.
They pu Thorough and splendid account of Bali culture. They put a premium on beauty and it makes the island a paradise. It was nice to know their culture more intimately through this book in a way I couldn't absorb in 9 days there. I enjoyed this old account of Bali, written in 's.
Although many parts of it weren't applicable to present day Bali, there were several parts that were, including the religion and ideas behind certain practices. The author includes anecdotes he heard while living there about the culture use of human blood in the dyes of the double ikat of Tenganan and notes about the fruit including snake fruit! Kept as a reference for future trips to Bali.
Nov 21, Dean Mermell rated it really liked it. Covarrubias was a prolific Mexican artist who was one of the first wave of westerners in the 30s to spend time in Bali. His drawings and descriptions of dance, ritual, and daily life give a beautiful taste of what things were like in those early days, before Bali changed into the much more commercial post card of itself we find today. This books is really good. It will give you the overview of the life in Bali. Not very in-depth, but quite well in describing what we need to know about Bali.
A must-read before you read other books fictions or non-fictions about Bali. May 11, Richard rated it it was amazing.

Covarrubias is practically forgotten and much under-appreciated as an artist in the current age. This is a marvelous book.
