Summary expansion
The study of tourism has made key contributions to the study anthropology. This volume defines the current state of the anthropology of tourism, examining political, economic, ideological and symbolic themes. An extraordinarily rich collection of case studies illustrate topics as diverse as monastic hospitality, sex and tourism, concepts of enchantment, colonial consumers, boundaries created by gender and ethnicity, as well as issues like consumerism, modernism, and nationalism. The book also covers to practical and policy issues related to urban, rural, and coastal planning and development. Thinking Through Tourism assesses the enormous potential contribution that analyses of tourism can offer to the mainstream of anthropological thinking. The volume opens up new avenues for enquiry and is an essential resource for students and scholars of anthropology, geography, tourism, sociology and related disciplines
