Tourism, Development and Terrorism in Bali

Two well-known academicians have explored the development of tourism and Bali's economy dating from the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s and the series of crises that have plagued Bali through the opening years of the new millennia.

"Tourism, Development and Terrorism in Bali" by London Metropolitan University's Professor Michael Hitchcock and University of Queensland's Dr. I Nyoman Darma Putra, examines government and community responses to the "troubles" that have befallen the world's most popular holiday destination over the past decade.

With a particular emphasis on crisis management in the wake of the Bali bombings, Hitchcock and Darma Putra not only look at the impact of the bombings on tourism development in Bali, but also attempt to expore the root causes of the attack within the larger context of Indonesian politics and the global rise of political Islam.

Separately, the authors visit growing local resistance in Bali to globalization, including opposition to efforts to add Bali's Mother Temple of Besakih to the United Nation's list of World Heritage Sites.

What the Critics Say

ē Richard Butler, Professor of International Tourism, University of Strathclyde, UK - "This is an important book for anyone seriously interested in the relationships between the key forces of tourism, globalization and cultural survival and the way they shape tourist destinations. It is made all the more relevant by a uniquely detailed examination of the impacts of terrorism on one such major tourist destination and its response."

ē Professor Adrian Vickers, University of Sydney, Australia - "This is the first comprehensive study of Bali in fifteen years, and most importantly the first book since the Bali bombings to explain not only the impact of those bombings, but also the factors in Bali that led to them. This book provides unique insights into how Balinese perceive themselves in these contexts, and how they have reacted to those pressures."
