This book investigates tourism as a form of globalization within the context of the island of Bali. The authors analyse crisis management with regard to the Bali bombings, examine the impact of the bombings on the tourism development cycle and investigate the motives of the bombers. They argue that the actions of the bombers can best be understood with regard to the rise of political Islam as a global issue and the book breaks new ground with an analysis of the bombers' global experiences. Home-grown resistance to certain aspects of globalization is also examined, notably the attempt to turn Besakih, the island's mother temple, into a World Heritage Site and top tourist destination.
