Tourists and Tourism: A Reader
The impact of global tourism research is evident throughout this meticulously edited collection. Embedded within a logical division of topics by thematic sections are over two dozen readings including nine brand new offerings by experienced international specialists in a range of disciplines. The globally diverse articles represent a generous mix of both foundational works as well as pieces that spotlight the latest ideas and issues in the growing field. Accessible in length and sophistication without being overly simplistic, the authoritative essays included in the second edition of the Gmelch volume make it one of the best single anthologies of social science research on tourism available. Appendices provide information on pertinent films and examples of behavioral guidelines written for tourists.
