An in-depth analysis of the interactions between tourists, the local community and place, this book shows how community ownership and participation in tourism affect the politics of representation and identity and the nature of the tourist experience. Living with Tourism develops a dynamic notion of culture and tourism sustainability, and provides new insights for scholars of tourism, anthropologists, geographers, and those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of this global phenomenon.
