Abstract

Culture and Society in Tourism Contexts is an edited volume which explores the social and cultural processes associated with the development of tourism in the Mediterranean. The volume is largely related to social and anthropological dimensions of tourism and includes some important debates and discussions concerning globalization, leisure and culture mobilities, cosmopolitanism, cultural identities and nation branding. The book is comprised of seven chapters which draw on ethnographic examples and case studies from Spain, Morocco, Germany, Lebanon, Croatia, Greece and France. Unlike many other volumes solely based on economic, social and environmental implications of tourism, this book adopts a new socio-cultural approach which treats tourism as an ideological reflection of global and mobile dynamics, cultural identities and collective memories. The chapters represent the work of a great variety of researchers from various background – sociologists, cultural anthropologists and human geographers, who use various research techniques to explore the role of culture and society in tourism contexts.
