Tourism social sciences; v.17

Social scientists and scholars of tourism management, all but one in Europe, explore how a context shaped by the long-time presence of tourism mediates and characterizes the way social actions acquire sense for people living in those regions. They discuss the valorization of heritage and sociality in Mediterranean cities, reinventing the eastern Adriatic for tourism, when the desirable and the feasible converge through tourism space, postcolonial travels in Morocco, building tourism in Costa Blanca, transnational mobilities and interculturality, and borders of (in)visibility in the Greek Aegean. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
