This is a concise and user–friendly guide to the Balinese language Everyday Balinese is targeted to anyone who wishes to learn to speak colloquial Balinese. There are 23 lessons in the book, each with a dialogue that centers around the Balinese daily life. These realistic beginner Balinese dialogues are a great way to learn Balinese as it is really spoken. The dialogue is presented twice: The first version representing the lumrah or common Balinese; the second the alus or refined Balinese. Both versions are exactly the same grammatically; the difference lies in the word choice. Lumrah or common words are used by participants of equal social status in a conversation, and it reflects intimacy and informality among the users. Alus or refined words are associated with distancing and formality among users in a conversation. Each lesson contains a section on the grammar an word function, as well as a list of words in both the lumrah and alus forms, followed by their Indonesian and English equivalents. Each lesson ends with a section on sentence construction—how to use the structures taught to make simple sentences. The book has a pronunciation guide at the front, and a section or greeting, ordinal numbers and a handy dictionary at the end. The dictionary is arranged alphabetically by Balinese, followed by their Indonesian and English equivalents.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Galveston was a beacon of opportunity on the Texas Gulf Coast. Dubbed the "Wall Street of the Southwest," its laissez-faire reputation called those hungry for success to its shores. Led by brothers Salvatore and Rosario at the height of Prohibition, the Maceo family answered that call and changed the Oleander City forever. They built an island empire of gambling, smuggling and prostitution that lasted three decades. Housed in their nightclubs frequented by stars like Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington, they endeared themselves to their Galveston neighbors by sharing their profits, imitating crime syndicates in their native Sicily. Though certainly no saints, the Maceos helped bring prosperity to a community weary from a century of turmoil. Discover the history of Galveston's famous crime family with authors Nicole Boatman, Dr. Scott Belshaw and Texas historian Richard McCaslin.

While most other books have focused on Javanese kekawin, a kind of Indonesian poetry, Rubinstein sets out to correct the imbalance with her study of Balinese kekawin. The first part distinguishes Bali as a society of religious literacy, the author examining alphabet magic and the religious beliefs underpinning literary activity. The second section explores Balinese conceptions of kekawin composition as literary yoga, with consideration of the priestly identity of its poets and the act of composing as a religious ritual. The final part investigates the craft of composition with prosody and orthography in texts like the Canda, Bhasaprana, and the Swarawyanjana. Rubinstein is an Australian Research Council Fellow attached to the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Sydney. Distributed in the US by The Book Bin.
