Tourist Cultures

Identity, Place and the Traveller

by Wearing, Stephen; Stevenson, Deborah; Young, Tamara

This engaging book argues that tourists - be they on a package tour or immersing themselves in local cultures - are not passive consumers of either destinations or their interpretations, but that they actively occupy a multi-sensory, embodied experience.
