* Exceptional overview of the tourism industry worldwide * Case studies of indigenous people's responses to tourism development * Detailed listing of tourism and ecotourism resources This is a fully revised and comprehensive overview of the history and global development of tourism--one of the largest industries in the world. Despite promising great benefits to hosts and guests alike, tourism often results in some very stark and painful consequences for local host communities and the environment. The second edition provides updated information on global tourism and examines how local communities in different parts of the world, especially indigenous peoples, have responded to the challenges and opportunities of tourism and ecotravel.
