The original Tourist Gaze was a classic, marking out a new land to study and appreciate. This new edition extends into fresh areas with the same passion and insight of the object. Even more essential reading!Nigel ThriftVice-Chancellor, Warwick University
Very relevant reading for our PG students...this subject matters crosses so many courses and units. This is Urry updated...what could be better?!
A classic work is back in its third edition. Urey and Larsen provide once again a deep insight in the psychological perspective of traveling and explain in a very appealing way the concept of the tourist gaze. Highly recommended to everyone that deals with these issues!!!
This book covers many topics from mass tourism to vision and photography. Highly recommended from tourism academics or tourism students doing research projects.
Recommended book for the course Tourism development and social and cultural impacts. This courses addresses Tourism theory in its first part. And this book is a classic on the field. Furthermore, this new and updated edition with Jonas Larsen incorporates new debates in a fast-paced changing issue such as tourism and mobility.
The book has become a classic text in travel and tourism studies and this new edition is yet another useful reference for academic, professionals and students in this multidisciplinary field!
The book is a good read in formulating an alternative and modern view of modern tourism but not suitable as a textbook for students' needs.
A classic text book which every Tourism student should have read, providing a good snapshot of tourist behaviour and society. This edition benefits from interesting and timely updates to the changing and dynamic tourism industry and how tourists are changing.
My students would find this book useful when they prepare a coursework.
A useful updated version of the tourism classic.
Urry's original 1990 text was ground breaking for its time. This new 3.0 edition continues to plot the cultural changes brought about by the continuing extension of liquid modernity over the globe. The Tourist Gaze 3.0 is an excellent text for undergraduates. The chapters are perfect starting points from which to initiate debates on emergent geographies, cultural performances and new outlooks in our era of mass mobilities and spectacularized markets.
An excellent update to a seminal text. The chapter on Tourism Risks and Futures is particularly salient (for my purposes). I always recommend it to my final year UG and PG(T) students studying social science perspectives on tourism.
An easy to follow text with interesting perspectives and approaches to key issues within and affecting the industry. Students will particularly find chapters 1-3, 5 and 9 useful for their studies within a number of modules on their programme.
I find this updated landmark contribution to the study of tourism sociology once again very useful as a basis of rich discussions at a Master's degree class in Tourist Behaviour.
I have asked the librarian to buy some copies, since it will be suggested for students in Tourism and Constructed Identities, and also for the Literature Exam in Tourism Geography.
Great update to previous editions. recommended as essential reading and also for student led research projects.
New and essential version of a key book for mobility studies.
together with my colleague we have decided to make the destination text supplementary reading for the new courses starting in year 3 and 4. The text is comprhensive and provides insight is various aspects of DM that is not or hardly covered by other books on the topic
The Tourist Gaze 3.0 contains significant amounts of new material compared to the previous edition of The Tourist Gaze. While still providing authoritative overviews of social and cultural theories of tourism, the history and economics of tourism, and, of course, the practices and materialities associated with the tourist gaze, each of the chapters has been updated. There are also new chapters on photography, performance, and 'risks and futures' that keep the argument bang up to date.
A true classic for everyone who is interested in the field of visual impact on society. The latest edition is even better, following new media and general Zeitgist flows.
