A useful introduction to the critical study of tourism, this brief text applies semiotics and cultural theory to deal with some of our most iconic global destinations. It offers accessible analyses of 18 famous tourist locations from the Taj Mahal to Red Square, and from the Eiffel Tower to Antarctica. Written in Berger’s friendly style, it allows students to critically examine the political, cultural and economic significance these locales and understand their importance to tourism. Study questions add more pedagogical value to the highly readable text.

The contributors to this volume theorize and analyse a variety of 'tourist utopias' - a nascent socio-spatial form and set of related practices crucial to a post-industrial, biopolitical global economy. From Disneyworld to Abu Dhabi, Singapore to Macau, 'Middle Earth' to Mount Athos, these sites share common characteristics that include their respective status as enclave 'spaces of exception'; entrepreneurial and neoliberal governance regimes that rely on cooperation among state and non-state actors; transient, multi-national populations of tourists and workers; immaterial and affective forms of labor and consumption; superlative and iconic architecture; and economies devoted to such heterotopian leisure activities as shopping, gambling, spectacle, and amusement. These locales are not only popular destinations for mobile tourists and migrant workers from around the globe, but also serve as cultural laboratories for testing new formats and protocols typical of an emergent post-Fordist form-of-life. NB: CATALOGUSTEKST CHICAGO: From Disneyworld to Abu Dhabi and the resorts and casinos of Singapore and Macau, 'tourist utopias' are a growing part of international capitalism. The book brings together a group of scholars from a wide range of disciplines to analyse these locations as 'spaces of exception, where entrepreneurial and neoliberal governance relies on cooperation among state and non-state actors, as well as transient multinational populations of both workers and consumers. They serve, the contributors argue, as cultural laboratories for testing new protocols for neoliberal governance and capitalist production.

From postcards and paintings to photography and film, tourism and visual culture have a long-standing history of mutual entanglement. For centuries art has inspired many an intrepid traveller, and tourism provides an insatiable market for indigenous art, 'authentic' or otherwise. This book explores the complex association between tourism and visual culture throughout history and across cultures. How has tourism been linked to images of colonial expansion? Why are we so intrigued by 'lost' places, such as Tutankhamun's tomb or Machu Picchu, South America's lost city of the Incas? What is the relationship between art, tourism and landscape preference? What role did commercial tourist photographers play in the imagination of Victorian Britain? Drawing upon examples from across the globe, this exciting new contribution to a popular subject illustrates how tourism and visual culture intersect with one another and in the process become contested ground.

Seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre werden in Windhoektouristische Besichtigungstouren durch das ehemalige Township Katutura angeboten. Damit war der Städtetourismus in der namibischen Hauptstadt recht früh Teil eines Trends, der zu Beginn desselben Jahrzehnts – ausgehend vom Nachbarland Südafrika – einsetzte: die touristische Inwertsetzung städtischer Armutsviertel. Dieses häufig als „Slum- oder Armutstourismus“ bezeichnete Phänomen sorgt seit seiner Entstehung nicht nur für einiges mediales Aufsehen und eine öffentliche Empörung, sondern das Global Slumming wird in den letzten Jahren auch immer mehr zum Gegenstand wissenschaftlicher Forschung. Der Slumtourismus bietet den Anlass neu über das Verhältnis von Armut und Tourismus im weltgesellschaftlichen Kontext nachzudenken. Diese Publikation ist das Ergebnis eines Studienprojekts des Instituts für Geographie der Universität Osnabrück. Sie ist die erste umfangreichere empirische Fallstudie zum Townshiptourismus in Namibia.
