New in HOORC's Library: Cultural Tourism in a Changing World
Cultural tourism in a changing world : politics, participation and (re)presentation from Channel View Publications, introduces researchers, students and practitioners to a range of debates about the political and social implications of cultural tourism. Theoretical sections provide the framework for a range of case studies of politics and policy, community participation and empowerment, and the issues of authenticity and commodification, interpretation and representation. The book explores some of the tensions between cultural preservation and social transformation, and includes a comparison of Maasai tourism projects in Kenya and Tanzania and analysis of township tourism in Soweto, South Africa. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
