Críticas:

A fresh look at the impact of tourism on the ethnicity and identity of villagers and interrelation between leisure and labor of rural tourism in China. . . . Chio's work is theoretically dense and empirically rich. . . . A Landscape of Travel makes a fine addition to the existing anthropological literature on tourism. . . . A valuable resource for a range of educational purposes. -- Yujie Zhu * American Anthropologist * [A] vivid ethnography. . . . A Landscape of Travel is well-organized, theoretically innovative, and ethnographically rich. -- Xiaoshun Zeng * The China Review * A Landscape of Travel is a valuable contribution to the study of tourism and ethnic minorities in contemporary China. It is unique in its attention to the role of rural-to-rural and returnee migrant subjectivities in the making of rural tourism destinations. . . .[I]t stands out among more recent but less rounded ethnographic books on tourism in China. -- Travis Klingberg * Pacific Affairs * Chio skillfully unpacks the complexities of ethnic-tourism development in rural China. ... [S]he lays bare the regimes of mobility and visuality that turn one person's leisure into another person's labor. ... A Landscape of Travel is a beautifully written, accessible, and engaging ethnographic monograph. -- Noel B. Salazar * Anthropological Quarterly * A Landscape of Travel is a valuable contribution to the study of tourism and ethnic minorities in contemporary China...It provides an updated account of dynamics detailed in the work of scholars such as Tim Oakes, Margaret Swain, and Louisa Schein, and it stands out among more recent but less rounded ethnographic books on tourism in China. -- Travis Klingberg * Pacific Affairs * A stimulating and fascinating book... a good read not only for experts or a broader public interested in China, tourism and cultural heritage preservation, but also for researchers in con-temporary visual culture, ethnography and migration. -- Heleni Porfyriou * Journal of Cultural Heritage *
