Summary "In 1936 anthropologist Margaret Mead and her husband, Gregory Bateson, retreated from lowland Bali, which was the focal point of much scholarly and tourist activity, to the remote village of Bayung Gede in the island's central highlands. They wrote relatively little about their work in this place, which Mead called "our village, way up in the mountains, a lovely self-contained village," but they did leave behind a remarkably rich and extensive photographic record of their time there."--BOOK JACKET. "Margaret Mead, Gregory Bateson, and Highland Bali includes 200 photographs that the couple took between 1936 and 1939, the vast majority of which have never before been published. They vividly capture the everyday lives of the men, women, and children of Bayung Gede, their homes, the temples in and around the community, and many other fascinating details of village life not featured in Mead and Bateson's publications."--BOOK JACKET.
"In a substantial introductory essay, Gerald Sullivan, who selected the photographs, uses excerpts from fieldnotes and correspondence to illuminate Mead and Bateson's ethnographic work."--BOOK JACKET.
