Examining exactly what social scientists mean by the term tourism, and what it means to be a tourist, this collection charts the sociological changes that have occurred in tourism, as well as the shift from the upper-class ‘grand tours’ of the late nineteenth-century to the mass tourism of the present day.
With an astonishing breadth and range of content, these fascinating volumes assess the economic impacts of tourism on local economies, the environmental considerations to take into account, and whether the huge growth in tourism is sustainable in a post-September 11th world.
Tourism: Critical Concepts in the Social Sciences is an accessible and comprehensive resource that is invaluable for academics and scholars researching tourism, globalization and human geography.
