On 12 October 2002, Bali seemed to crumble overnight, when hundreds of tourists and locals who were enjoying themselves became victims of two horrific bomb blasts. The bombs took the lives of 202 people -- 88 of whom were Australians, and severely injured many more. The Bali bombing brought Australians closer to the terror which has dominated world headlines for over a year. This book presents a comprehensive summary of the event, the investigation and the main perpetrators. Dewi's work as an Indonesian journalist in Australia puts her in a unique position to observe and understand how the tragedy of the Bali bombing has played out in Australia, Bali and elsewhere in Indonesia. Indonesians and foreign observers alike have been pondering whether 'Indonesian Islam' remains as moderate, liberal and tolerant as many had believed. Part of this book is about Dewi's own journey through this pondering. Includes: Map of Eastern Indonesia; Plan of Kuta, showing Sari Club and Paddy's Bar; four colour plates of Kuta and the main perpetrators of the bombing.
