About the Author:

Professor Kevin Hannam is Professor of Tourism Development and Head of Tourism at the University of Sunderland, UK. He is the co-editor with Mimi Sheller and John Urry of the journal Mobilities. He has published widely on cultural geography and conceptual aspects of tourism development, with a particular empirical focus on India and Scandinavia. DrIrena Ateljevic is based within the Socio-Spatial Analysis Group at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. She is the co-editor of recent books on critical tourism including: Ateljevic, I. Morgan, N. and Pritchard, A. (2007) The Critical Turn in Tourism Studies: Exploring Innovative Methodologies (Elsevier Advanced Series); and Pritchard, A. Morgan, N. Ateljevic, I. and Harris, C. (2007) Tourism, Gender and Embodiment (CAB International). Her most recent research interest lies in analysing the political implications and powers surrounding the production of academic knowledge.

Review:

This fascinating and thoughtfully-edited collection of new research illustrates the changing dynamics of backpacker tourism. It makes a solid contribution to our understanding of backpacker tourism, but also raises important questions within ongoing larger debates about power, human societies and change.

(Dr Mark Hampton, Senior Lecturer in Tourism Management, University of Kent.)

This book offers a number of new insights into the backpacking phenomenon. The volume is definitely well worth reading as both background literature and as a research reference for researchers.

(Günter Spreitzhofer, University of Vienna Annals of Tourism Research 35 (3))
