Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471963097, Hardcover)

The Tourist Image applies an anthropological perspective to the study of tourism myths. Contributions from around the world examine tourist images as presented by travel brochures, holiday postcards, the heritage industry, museums and resorts. It looks at how tourism subtly alters and commodifies the cultures of both the tourist hosts and guests. Illustrated with numerous intriguing and arresting images, the book presents a fascinating introduction to the anthropology of tourism and is a vital addition to the literature of the field.
