Rate this:
Under the Volcano is a popular history written by a master storyteller. It explores the island of Bali in a way that will enthral both lovers of history and curious visitors.

Bali has been a dream of paradise for many travellers. Nehru said, "This is the last paradise . . . This is the morning of the world." Yet it has also seen much bloodshed - from the ritual suicides of Balinese warriors to the recent Islamist bombing of the Sari Club.

In Under the Volcano , Cameron Forbes looks at the blood and the beauty of Bali, through interviews, legends, reporting and history. He tells the stories of surfers, jihadists and drug-runners, and traces the rich religious and cultural fabric of Balinese life. In so doing, he brings the story of the island paradise up to date.
