Ed. by David Picard and Mike Robinson.

Tourism and cultural change; 8


Traditional local festivals that foster a sense of community have increasingly become a destination of organized tourism. Picard (anthropology, Sheffield Hallam U., UK) and Robinson (tourism and culture, Leeds Metropolitan U., Leeds) introduce 16 chapters by international contributors treating the issues involved in rediscovered, reinvented, or newly created events from Australia's Camp Oven Festival to gay and lesbian pride festivals. For example, does global marketing compromise their authenticity and promote a postmodern sense of placelessness? Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution.
