About the Author:

Yvette Reisinger is Adjunct Professor of Business at James Cook University in Singapore. Her research interests include cross-cultural differences in behavior, communication, and socio-cultural impacts of tourism.

Review:

"This collection of essays reflects the gradual shift of the tourism literature from the mechanisms of tourism (transportation, hospitality, etc.) to a broad focus on the experience of tourist. The tourist is the focal point of "value-added tourism" in this work, where besides traveling from postcard site to postcard site, the tourist views the experience through a variety of transformational lenses. Chapters, written by contributors from around the world, demonstrate that travel and tourism, "if developed in a proper from, can contribute to human transformation, growth and development, and change human behavior and our relationship with the world." These transformations are explored in sections titled 'Wellness, Retreat, Religious and Spiritual Tourism,' 'Extreme Sports, Backpacking and Cultural Tourism,' 'WWOOFing and Ecotourism,' and 'Volunteer and Educational Tourism.' Editor Reisinger (Temple Univ.) has produced a work that presents these perspectives in a lively, well-written manner. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through faculty and research collections (CHOICE)
