9780742528765: Travels in Paradox: Remapping Tourism

This innovative volume focuses on tourism through the twin lenses of cultural theory and cultural geography. Presenting a set of innovative case studies on tourist places around the world, the contributors explore the paradoxes of the tourist experience and the implications of these paradoxes for our broader understanding of modern identity as simultaneously grounded and mobile. The book examines how tourism reveals the paradoxical ways that places are both mobile and rooted, real and fake, inhabited by those who are simultaneously insiders and outsiders, and both subjectively experienced and objectively viewed. This rich blend of empirical and theoretical analysis will be invaluable for cultural geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists of tourism.

About the Author:

Claudio Minca is professor of human geography at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Tim Oakes is associate professor of geography at the University of Colorado.

Review:

It is unusual to encounter a volume that actually advances the gigantic discourse on tourism. This one does it. Via a series of theoretically informed but non-doctrinaire studies of the ways tourists inflect places and vice-versa we get a glimpse of the future of tourism studies. Smart, readable, and essential for every tourist and tourism researcher. (Dean MacCannell)

Appropriately illustrated and well footnoted, the volume also has an excellent bibliography....Recommended. (Choice)

Highly recommended for all cultural geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists of tourism. (H-Net Reviews)

Well worth reading. It could be appropriately used in a graduate course devoted to tourism and should be useful and thought provoking to tourism and travel scholars in the social sciences. (American Anthropologist)

This book marks the coming-of-age of new narratives of tourism, travel, and place. Each chapter is a vital part of a whole that presents an exciting new field of research and a set of compelling insights into the pressing problems that the paradoxes of travel have generated. (Nigel Thrift)

Descripción Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 304 pages. This innovative volume focuses on tourism through the twin lenses of cultural theory and cultural geography. Presenting a set of innovative case studies on tourist destinations around the world, the contributors explore the paradoxes of the tourist experience and the implications of these paradoxes for our broader understanding of the problems of modernity and identity. The book examines how tourism reveals the paradoxical ways that places are both mobile and rooted, real and fake, inhabited by those who are simultaneously insiders and outsiders, and both subjectively experienced and objectively viewed. The concepts of travel and mobility long have been used to explain modern identity and social behavior, but this work pushes beyond the established literature by considering the ways that place and mobility are inherently related in unexpected, even contradictory ways. Travel, the international cast of authors contends, occurs in place rather than between places. Thus, instead of offering yet another interpretation of the ways modern societies are distinguished by their mobilities-in contrast to the supposed place-bound quality of traditional societies-the chapters here collectively argue for an understanding of modern identity as simultaneously grounded and mobile. This rich blend of empirical and theoretical analysis will be invaluable for cultural geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists of tourism. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
