Summary

It is becoming ever clearer that while people tour cultures, cultures and objects themselves are "on the bus" in the sense that they are in a constant state of migration.Touring Culturesis edited by John Urry, one of the most acclaimed authors in the field of tourism studies. This collection brings together some of the most influential writers in the field, including Jenni Craik and David Chaney, to examine the complex connections between tourism and cultural change and the relevance of tourist experience to current theoretical debates on space, time and identity. Certain to be an indispensible asset to those involved in learning or teaching about tourism,Touring Cultures, bringing together in one volume a wealth of thinking from a multidisciplinary range, will also have cross-course appeal in a variey of fields.
