9780471948339: Tourism: A Gender Analysis
Reseña del editor:

The rapid and sustained growth of the tourism and leisure industry has transformed the social structures and economies of many countries, both as users and suppliers of tourist services. This transformation has been most marked in the gender dimension, particularly since female participation either as tourists or as tourist workers has been the spearpoint of change. This work examines the impact of tourism from the perspective of gender studies; it deliberately adopts a wide view of the topic, and while concentrating on women, does not neglect the changing states of men and intergender relations. The book is divided into three parts: in the first, the editors provide a broad review of the field and outline the main conceptual issues, which leads on to a detailed and original analysis of the main factors relating to gender in tourism development in a global context. The second section presents a selection of case studies highlighting other issues, ranging from topics as diverse as sex tourism in south east Asia, and gender in tourism planning to the impact of tourism on women in traditional societies. The final part introduces a range of conceptual models for the study of these themes, together with suggestions for future research agendas.
