More on tourism and travelling – J.J. (‘Hans’) Bakker’s Review of Arthur Asa Berger’s Bali Tourism #sssi

We stick with the topic of tourism and travelling. Arthur Asa Berger who is well known for his pioneering work on popular culture in the 1960s and 1970s has written a series of short quasi-ethnographic books based on his travels on cruise liners or to countries like Japan or most recently Bali. Hans Bakker highlights the provocative arguments Berger makes about Bali culture and the readability of the book.

The review that now has been published on Early View has been written by J.J. ‘Hans’ Bakker who frequently travels to Bali and knows the cultural events and symbols discussed by Berger very well.
