Balinese Character: A Photographic Analysis by Gregory Bateson, Margaret Mead, Wilbur G. Valentine

By Gregory Bateson, Margaret Mead, Wilbur G. Valentine

By way of advantage of its particular approach to presentation, this pretty and distinguished
book, commemorating the one hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the founding of the hot 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 positive factors of Balinese life.
These are followed by means of explanatory reviews, sometimes through excerpts from notes
made parallel to the taking of the images, and via 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 photographs, their bright detail
and beneficiant sequences, hold the reader right into a concrete adventure of training-inthe-culture
which verbal fabric couldn't supply. The 2 hundred pages of plates and commentary
are preceded via an essay on Balinese personality through Mead, in descriptive and interpretative
form. This end-result of commentary, association, and research is thus
brought into relation to the pictures.
