Beschreibung

This innovative volume focuses on tourism through the twin lenses of cultural theory and cultural geography. Presenting a set of innovative case studies on tourist places around the world, the contributors explore the paradoxes of the tourist experience and the implications of these paradoxes for our broader understanding of modern identity as simultaneously grounded and mobile. The book examines how tourism reveals the paradoxical ways that places are both mobile and rooted, real and fake, inhabited by those who are simultaneously insiders and outsiders, and both subjectively experienced and objectively viewed. This rich blend of empirical and theoretical analysis will be invaluable for cultural geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists of tourism.

Pressestimmen

It is unusual to encounter a volume that actually advances the gigantic discourse on tourism. This one does it. Via a series of theoretically informed but non-doctrinaire studies of the ways tourists inflect places and vice-versa we get a glimpse of the future of tourism studies. Smart, readable, and essential for every tourist and tourism researcher. -- Dean MacCannell, University of California, Davis Appropriately illustrated and well footnoted, the volume also has an excellent bibliography...Recommended. CHOICE Highly recommended for all cultural geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists of tourism. H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online Well worth reading. It could be appropriately used in a graduate course devoted to tourism and should be useful and thought provoking to tourism and travel scholars in the social sciences. American Anthropologist This book marks the coming-of-age of new narratives of tourism, travel, and place. Each chapter is a vital part of a whole that presents an exciting new field of research and a set of compelling insights into the pressing problems that the paradoxes of travel have generated. -- Nigel Thrift, Oxford University
