Balinese Character: A Photographic Analysis

By way of advantage of its specific approach to presentation, this pretty and distinguished
book, commemorating the a hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the founding of the recent York Academy
of Sciences, is either a source-book and a succinct interpretation of the tradition of Bali.
It offers over seven-hundred candid photos chosen from 25,000 Leica negatives, in a
highly prepared and built-in representation of convinced significant good points of Balinese life.
These are followed via explanatory reviews, sometimes by means of excerpts from notes
made parallel to the taking of the images, and by way of interpretative summaries pointing
out the relationships among images grouped jointly. The checklist 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 brilliant 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 through an essay on Balinese personality through Mead, in descriptive and interpretative
form. This end-result of remark, association, and research is thus
brought into relation to the pictures.

In the 1960s five major newspaper groups controlled most Welsh titles. In south-east Wales it was the South Wales Argus (later a subsidiary of United Newspapers); in Cardiff it was Thomson Regional Newspapers; in the south-west it was Swansea Press Ltd, a subsidiary of Associate Newspapers. The other two were Woodhall’s Newspaper Ltd (mid Wales) and the North Wales Chronicle Co. Ltd (A. Jones, 1993: 222–3) By 1979, of the Welsh-language publications, Y Cymro (‘The Welshman’) was owned by North Wales Newspapers Ltd, Herald Môn, by Herald Newspapers, with four of the remaining eight in church ownership (H.

Railways, which made the provisioning and employment of large concentrated populations possible, also made possible the larger markets for newspapers. (1985: 8–9) In addition, the mechanization of printing presses and their increasing power and sophistication in the nineteenth century boosted circulations and increased the capital needed to start up a newspaper. Wales benefited from a slow improvement in educational provision prior to the 1870 Education Act, but the development of the press was held back until after the 1850s by general economic conditions and the legal restraints on the industry.
