Summary

The original Tourist Gaze was a classic, marking out a new land to study and appreciate. This new edition extends into fresh areas with the same passion and insight of the object. Even more essential reading!' - Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor, Warwick University

This new edition of a seminal text restructures, reworks and remakes the groundbreaking previous versions so making this very successful book even more relevant for tourism students, researchers and designers in the new century.

- risks and alternative futures

Innovative and informative this book is essential reading for all involved in contemporary tourism, leisure, cultural policy, design, economic regeneration, heritage and the arts.
