International Tourism
Identity and Change

Edited by:


© 1995 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Tourism is fast becoming a prominent feature of daily life. Despite this, recent literature on the topic of tourism and tourist studies is relatively sparse. Now, in International Tourism, a team of distinguished contributors offers new insights into theories of tourism and touristic practices. Contributors move away from the traditional paradigm in tourist studies that focused almost exclusively on the effects or consequences of tourism. Instead, they convincingly reconceptualize tourism, offering a theoretically sophisticated reappraisal of tourism as a transnational global issue. Replete with illustrative case studies, this volume rethinks many of the assumptions inherent in tourism research. International Tourism is a must for all scholars and students in sociology, leisure studies, and tourism studies.

`This book is one of several indications that the sociology of tourism is on the move.... these articles raise relevant important themes in the study of tourism.... The contributors to this very readable book provide valuable insights, many of which have been derived from empirical research, that should interest anyone involved in the study of international tourism. And by moving us away from polarised positions over the social impact of tourism toward more complex but also more considered perspectives they have also helped alter the agenda for future research' - David Harrison, University of Sussex
