Tourism that hurts Book Description :

Tourism, for the uninitiated reader is a bright, sunny and interesting sector that satisfies the needs of resting, quest, knowledge, fun, curiosity and finally recreation. This kind of tourism seeks and visualizes everyone, in this tourism everyone seeks for the fulfilment of some of his desires; this tourism is being dreamed before the journey and this one reminisce after completion. In addition, tourism offers a lot and important benefits to an individual, to the destination, to the country, even to the globe, from financial, employment, social, cultural and psychological point of view. However, this tourism has some other negative, dark, delinquent aspects, such as sex tourism, death tourism, illegal medical tourism etc, all which are highlighted systematically and in an analytical manner in this book, as the invisible and defamatory side. The contributors - people that deacon scientifically and professionally tourism for years – wish these iniquities and corruptions, to be known to the state as well as to the wide public, in order to find ways to confront them. This book is addressed to all those that they love, study or work in the tourism sector and through this are hoping of the reinforcement of its constructive aspect.

Heritage That Hurts Book Description :

Memorial sites, sites of “dark tourism,” are vernacular spaces that are continuously negotiated, constructed, and reconstructed into meaningful places. Using the locale of the 9/11 tragedy, Joy Sather-Wagstaff explores the constructive role played by tourists in understanding social, political, and emotional impacts of a violent event that has ramifications far beyond the local population. Through in-depth interviews, photographs, graffiti, even souvenirs, she compares the 9/11 memorial with other hurtful sites—the Oklahoma City National Memorial, Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, and others—to show how tourists construct and disperse knowledge through performative activities, which make painful places salient and meaningful both individually and collectively.

The handbook adopts a progressive and thematic approach, including critical accounts of dark tourism history, dark tourism philosophy and theory, dark tourism in society and culture, dark tourism and heritage landscapes, the ‘dark tourist’ experience, and the business of dark tourism. The Palgrave Handbook of Dark Tourism Studies will appeal to students and scholars with an interest in aspects of memorialisation and morality in sociology, death studies, history, geography, cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, business management, museology and heritage tourism studies, politics, religious studies, and anthropology.

Festivals Tourism and Social Change Book Description :

This book explores the links between tourism and festivals and the various ways in which each mobilises the other to make social realities meaningful. Drawing upon a series of international cases, festivals are examined as ways of responding to various forms of crisis - social, political, economic - and as a way of re-making and re-animating spaces and social life. Importantly, this book locates festivals in the constantly changing, socio-economic and political contexts that they always operate in and respond to - contexts that are both historical and modern at the same time. Tourism is bound closely together with such contexts; feeding and challenging festivals with audiences that are increasingly transient and transnational. Tourism interrogates notions of ritual and tradition, shapes new spaces and creates, and renews, relationships between participants and observers. No longer can we dismiss tourists simply as value neutral and crass consumers of spectacle, nor tourism as some inevitable commercial force. Tourism is increasingly complicit in the festival processes of re-invention, and in forming new patterns of social existence.
