There is a wealth of case study material on tourism from a variety of different disciplines, but few attempts to synthesize the broad themes into a coherent analytical framework. This book addresses this problem by analyzing tourism in light of contemporary social theory. By focusing on tourism in terms of consumption, commodification, and the political and cultural economy, the relationships between tourism, globalization, people and place are explored in an empirically grounded but theoretically informed analysis.
