'_The No-Nonsense Guide to Tourism_ tells you what the Lonely Planet does not – that there is more to your holiday than visiting the ‘attractions’, relishing local cuisines or enjoying a siesta on a hammock by a beach.' - Equations, advocacy and campaigning organisation, Bangalore, India.
'Perspectives on history, politics, development and social attitudes. There is plenty of material to fuel interesting discussions. This book has a place in KS4 and also for college courses touching on tourism, business, economics and even modern history.' - School Librarian, UK.
'_The No-Nonsense Guide to Tourism_ makes us look inside the invisible world of exploitation and money-making that is modern tourism. Nowicka takes apart the myth that tourism is a desirable path to development for poor countries.' - Morning Star, London.
This No-Nonsense Guide demystifies the often invisible impacts of global tourism, one of the biggest industries in the world. From labor conditions to development by stealth; to the role of elites and the cultural impacts on both the visitor and the visited.
It also takes in themes like the gap year, the role of travel and vacations in western cultures, and examines the ‘happy smiling faces’ syndrome and asks whether this is just a reworking of old colonial relationships.
