"Pilgrimage as a mode of tourism has hardly been investigated. This book does so, focussing on one specific pilgrimage voyage - that to the Holy Land during times of security crisis there." In doing so, it examines this tourism journey in relation to constraints and high levels of risk involved by the pilgrims. It explores both the behavioral aspects of undertaking pilgrimage to such an insecure situation and the impacts of such crisis on the host tourism infrastructure and industry. It therefore not only provides insights into pilgrimage as tourism and into this particular country's experience, but also offers an integrative approach to tourism crisis management.
