      Tourism, Power and Culture

      Anthropological Insights

      Edited by Donald Macleod and James G. Carrier


      This book is something of a landmark in the tourism literature by strengthening  the sometimes tenuous links between tourism and anthropology through a series of fascinating cases. It focuses on issues of power but also demonstrates the  power of fieldwork in getting nuanced responses to the sometimes fractious relationships between hosts and guests.

      Peter Burns, Director, Centre for Tourism Policy Studies University of Brighton, UK


      Power and culture are inextricably bound up with tourism. The anthropological case studies in this groundbreaking book explore this relationship in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Australia and South East Asia. Two sections deal with tourism and the power struggle for resources; and tourism and culture: presentation, promotion and the manipulation of image. A concluding chapter investigates the relationship between tourism and power.
