Editorial Reviews

J. R. McDonald
Modern tourism is still widely believed to be a transfer of people and money from the developed to the less developed world. As Paul Theroux put it in "The Old Patagonian Express"(1979: "Air travel has wished tourists on only the most moth-eaten countries in the world; tourism, never more energetically pursued than in static societies, is usually the mobile rich making a blind, blundering visitation on the inert poor.
From the Publisher
A very original and thought-provoking text.'
Environmental Politics

'This book is informative and offers some necessary insights into domestic tourism.'
Geographical Journal

'A book on domestic tourism with a Third World focus was long overdue, and Ghimire has done a very good job of providing an overview of the key issues and pulling together interesting case study material.'
Development in Practice

This book shows how traditional purposeful journeyings - pilgrimages, festivals and fairs and celebrations - are mutating into the distractions of the leisure industry.'
The Ecologist, October 2001
