Description - Living with Tourism by Hazel Tucker

Tourism is now recognised as a major player in the interaction between the local and global, especially within economic and social processes. Accordingly, significant attention is being paid to the practices and experiences of local communities as they are visited by and serve tourists. Living with Tourism redefines the 'community' that is of interest when considering the effects that tourism has on culture, by providing an ethnographic account of both the toured and touring community in G/reme, central Turkey. Living With Tourism is an in-depth analysis of the interactions between tourists, the local community and place. It demonstrates the implications that community ownership and participation in tourism have for the politics of representation and identity, and also for the nature of the tourist experience. It is shown how, together with host communities, tourists themselves are continuously negotiating their own identities and experiences in interaction with the people and places they meet. This book develops a dynamic notion of culture and tourism sustainability, and therefore provides new insights not only for scholars of tourism, but also for those in the areas of anthropology, geography and social studies who wish to gain a deeper understanding of this global phenomenon in the contemporary world.
