This book seeks to advance feminist and gender tourism studies with its focus on embodiment. Broad themes include the construction of narratives, how discourses of desire, sensuality and sexuality pervade the tourism experience, the use of the body to represent femininity, masculinity and sensuality, and finally how travel and tourism allow for empowerment, resistance and carnivalesque opportunities.
A useful resource for students of tourism and tourism management, industry professionals and policy makers, this book provides a synthesis of tourism as a source of injustice and as a means to address inequality throughout the world and focuses a wide range of interrelated forms of inequality and routes towards social justice. It includes relations of class, nation, race, gender, disability and age to social justice initiatives such as poverty alleviation, fair trade, ethics and human rights.
Transformational Tourism deals with the important issue of how travel and tourism can change human behaviour and have a positive impact on the world. The book focuses on human development in a world dominated by post-9/11 security and political challenges, economic and financial collapses, and environmental threats. It identifies various types of tourism that can transform human beings, such as educational, volunteer, survival, community-based, eco, farm, extreme, religious, spiritual, wellness, and mission tourism.
