"The text critically examines some of the traditional ways in which tourism has been theorized, and it argues for a reformulation of accepted classifications to take account of the complexities of change, which are as much the product of the localities as they are of globalisation. It calls for a new approach that concentrates on the role tourism plays in the dynamics of change and transformation to places and cultures in a globalised world." "Combining a wide variety of examples from around the world with sound theoretical analysis, this book demonstrates the light sociological perspectives can shed on this area of mass consumption."--BOOK JACKET.
