Broken-hearted and unemployed in 1974, Phil Jarratt spent his last few hundred dollars on a holiday package to Bali – the start of an adventure that has lasted a lifetime.

Broken-hearted and unemployed in 1974, Phil Jarratt spent his last few hundred dollars on a holiday package to Bali – the start of an adventure that has lasted a lifetime. To outsiders the Indonesian island appears to be a peaceful, tropical paradise full of laidback, spiritual people, however the island has a long and sometimes bloody history, including two post-9/11 bombings that killed more than 200 people.

In his 2014 book Bali: Heaven and Hell Jarratt explores the rise of Hindu culture, the cruel eras of European colonialism and the start of the tourist industry, interwoven with a personal memoir of the island.
