By means of advantage of its exact approach to presentation, this gorgeous and distinguished
book, commemorating the one hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the founding of the recent York Academy
of Sciences, is either a source-book and a succinct interpretation of the tradition of Bali.
It provides over seven-hundred candid photos chosen from 25,000 Leica negatives, in a
highly equipped and built-in representation of definite significant beneficial properties of Balinese life.
These are followed by way of explanatory reviews, sometimes by way of excerpts from notes
made parallel to the taking of the images, and through interpretative summaries pointing
out the relationships among images grouped jointly. The list of “visual and
kinaesthetic studying” illustrates the original contribution of the photographic document
at its most sensible. right here the empathy-stimulating caliber of the images, their vibrant detail
and beneficiant sequences, hold the reader right into a concrete adventure of training-inthe-culture
which verbal fabric couldn't supply. The two hundred pages of plates and commentary
are preceded through an essay on Balinese personality via Mead, in descriptive and interpretative
form. This end-result of remark, association, and research is thus
brought into relation to the pictures.

Even as cultural imperialism dressed up in euphemistic phrases becomes globally more rampant, our redoubled critical task is situated in the framework of a national culture. But from the other end, as it were. I would maintain that the norm of a modern, secular identity is honourable, but that its gestalt has to be rethought. At the same time, the normative profile that Indian cultural practitioners, artists among them, have hitherto adopted needs reconsideration. Living traditions At an ethical level, the votaries of a nationalist position will expect to fulfil the responsibility of always contextualising their artistic choices, situating them within the continuum of a living tradition.
