This book is designed to give an overview and critical assessment of the developing field of tourism study in anthropology. It aims to engage the reader with questions that anthropologists have raised about tourist and the ways that they have dealt with them in their research. Basic research from three theoretical perspectives is reviewed and assessed: tourist as a form of development or acculturation, as a personal transition, and as a kind of social super structure. In later chapters, the applied side of the field is examined, including considerations of tourist policy and sustainable tourism development. Most chapters include summary case studies illustrating some of the important points under examination. The book concludes with a discussion of the integration of basic and applied approaches in the anthropological agenda on tourism and suggestions concerning the future course of study in the field.

Review:

Helen M. Hintjens, Centre for development Studies, University of Wales, Swansea
...if ever a book were to be judged by its cover, it would be this one, as the cover is stunning...and...the contents largely fulfil the cover's promise...
The Journal of Development Studies
Dr Tej Vir Singh
Nash has done a good job and deserves our congratulations for expanding frontiers of tourism research, besides giving a firm base to anthropology of tourism.
Tourism Recreation Research, Vol 22, Number 1, 1997
