Abstract:

"Set against the backdrop of the Dutch invasion of Bali in 1906, and the resulting 'mass suicide' of the Balinese royalty, the moving story unfolds of the peasant Pak and his family and friends, and the tragedy that is their shared fate. Written within living memory of the bloody events called the puputan (the 'ending'), Love and Death in Bali is the story of a passionate yet peaceful and deeply spiritual people who defy the Dutch imperial forces through an act that would bring them certain death--and certain rebirth."--P. [4] of cover.
