The Making of Heritage examines the process of heritage making and its relation to the production of tourist destinations and examines several international case studies. The editors and contributors establish theoretical links between analyses of heritage and the production and reproduction of places in the context of the global tourist trade. They explore the complexity of heritageAEs production--shaped by local and global discourses and representations--and its influence on policies and legislation. Eight chapters are: metaculture and its malcontents; Buddhist circuits and the oworldingo practices in North India; seductions and disenchantments in the making of an ecomuseum; imprisoning ethnic heritage in French Guiana; indigenous crafts, political re-enchantment and the rational of heritage making in Costa Rica; Mexico for sale; feeding disenchantment; tourism values and the becoming ordinary of heritage.
