9781864033533: Now Australia: Bali, Paradise Lost?

Having visited the island many times over the last 15 years Emma Tom went to Bali earlier this year to report on what it's NOW like to be an Australian in Bali. With tourist arrivals from Australia falling by half over the last year it is clear many Australians are no longer comfortable visiting what for thousands was a favourite holiday destination. But how have Australians imagined and used Bali in the past and what is likely to be the future relationship between Australians, the Balinese and their Javanese masters? And after terrorist attacks, The Bali Nine, Schapelle Corby, and calls for seccession from Indonesia from within, what are the Balinese NOW thinking of Australians and the future?

Review:

Emma Tom's uniquely honest and humorous style makes Bali: Paradise Lost? a must read for anyone with an interest in exploring the political tensions, misconceptions and complex shifting fortunes of Indonesia's troubled tourist haven. Tom explores Australia's changing relationship with Indonesia, and fearlessly reveals her own intimate experiences with the destination so many Australian's have viewed as 'paradise'.' - Bestselling crime writer Tara Moss --Bestselling crime writer, Tara Moss.

Beautifully written and magically structured, Emma Tom's Bali: Paradise Lost? is an evocative, funny, and honest look at the on-again, off-again love affair between Australians and the Indonesian island we like to call our own.' --Linda Jaivin, author of The Infernal Optimist and The Monkey and the Dragon
