9781845415624: Exploring the Use and Impact of Travel Guidebooks (Tourism and Cultural Change)

This volume provides the first comprehensive examination of travel guidebooks and their conceptualisation, use and impact. Guidebooks have been key tourism paraphernalia for almost two centuries and although researched in some areas, academic knowledge on guidebooks in tourism has not been expansively communicated. The uncritical, unreflective and largely pejorative approach to guidebooks in the public sphere, and to some degree also present in academia, is reassessed in this book. This challenges the current limited tourism research approaches to the topic, including the routinely held assumption that the internet has all but destroyed the printed guidebook. This book will be a useful resource for postgraduate students and researchers in tourism and tourism communications and consumption.

About the Author:

Victoria Peel is a senior lecturer in cultural tourism management in the Graduate Tourism program hosted by the National Centre for Australian Studies, Monash University, Australia. Her research focuses on cultural tourism and the backpacker and student tourism markets. Anders Sørensen is owner and manager of Tourismlab.dk, which provides tourism and hospitality research and consultancy and produces knowledge of tourism and tourists. His research interests include backpacker tourism, travel guidebooks and tourism in peripheral areas.

Review:

This book represents an ambitious exploration of one of the most pervasive and long standing requisites of tourism: the guidebook. It provides a comprehensive and critical review of contemporary research approaches addressing the entanglement of guidebooks with tourist experiences since the early days of mass tourism to digitalized travel. By combining conceptual insights with contextualized empirical enquiries, Peel and Sørensen offer a cutting-edge resource for advanced studies on tourism.

(Szilvia Gyimóthy, Aalborg University, Denmark)

This is first class scholarship for two reasons. First, it is undoubtedly the best historic, semiotic, and literary ethnography of tourist guidebooks we have. Second, its analysis treats the question of tourists’ understanding of the world with the conceptual and theoretical complexity it deserves.

(Tom Selwyn, SOAS, University of London, UK)

A refreshingly lucid, multifaceted exploration of the guidebook that advances the sociological analysis offered by MacCannell’s reading of contemporary society. Peel and Sørensen eminently uncover how the guidebook influences tourists and tourism performances, the co-creation of tourism places and businesses as reflection of shifts in the overall tourism system.

(Janne J. Liburd, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark)

In short, Peel and Sorensen have written a tightly constructed, well-written book that flows well and enhances the reader’s understanding and enjoyment of the focus of the book. The chapters revolving around understanding tourists and their use of guidebooks were particularly beneficial to me. In conclusion, buy this book for the questions it answers and raises. You will be pleased with it as it does a very good job of lucidly delivering subject matter that is more complex than the average academic would expect. As with all well-written books, I left with a much greater understanding of the subject matter than which I began. I believe you will do and will do so in an enjoyable manner.

(Edward Udd, Radford University, USA Annals of Leisure Research, 2016)
