This vintage book contains Miguel Covarrubias’s 1937 work, “The Island of Bali”. Comprising a wealth of information on day-to-day life, culture, manners, and religion on the 'Island of the Gods', this volume furnishes an authentic 'bird’s-eye view' of Balinese society. It is highly recommended for those with an interest in the subject. Miguel Covarrubias (1904 - 1957) was a Mexican artist, caricaturist, ethnologist and historian - famed for his illustrations and theatre work. Many antiquarian texts such as this, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
