This book explores the relationship between tourism and the moving image, from the early era of silent moving pictures through to cinema as mass entertainment. It examines how our active and emotional engagement with moving images provides meaning and connection to a place that can affect our decision-making when we travel. It also analyses how our touristic experiences can inform our film-viewing. A range of genres and themes are studied including the significance of the western, espionage, road and gangster movies, along with further study of film studio theme parks and an introduction to the relationship between gaming and travel. This book will appeal to tourism scholars as well as film studies professionals, and is written in an accessible manner for a general audience.

Review:

This is a rigorous, informative and charming book about the nexus of the moving image and tourism. The author draws the reader in with her personal stories, perspectives and passion, while also providing a rich historical perspective and clear conceptual frameworks. It breaks new ground and provides much needed knowledge in this area of tourism.

(Pauline Sheldon, Professor Emeritus, University of Hawaii, USA)

Images are central to how the tourist gaze is organized, systemized and performed. Travel, Tourism and the Moving Image is a ‘moving’ book about moving images, packed with interesting ideas and fascinating cases. This succinct book is essential reading for scholars and students interested in the cultural tourism geographies of gazing and images. 

(Jonas Larsen, Roskilde University, Denmark)
