"This volume proves anthropology's engagement with tourism can lead to more than a marriage of convenience. Tourism challenges ethnographers by requiring them to deal with porous culture boundaries, multiple bodies in motion, hybridity, and complex new forms of reflexivity in "tradition," "ritual," and "identity." The reports assembled here more than meet these tests. It is a pleasure to encounter anthropology's classic concepts and methods retooled and newly relevant for understanding our changing world." Dean MacCannell, Environmental Design & Landscape Architecture, University of California, Davis "This collection provides new insights into how tourist space is contested and controlled, how sexualised bodies are displayed in the everyday, how the tourists' national identity is constructed in tourist settings, and how anthropological interventions disrupt the purely academic. An altogether marvelous volume and an important addition to tourism studies." Edward M Bruner, author of Culture on Tour: Ethnographies of Travel, 2005
