Tourism and Indigenous Peoples is a unique text examining the role of indigenous societies in tourism and how they interact within the tourism nexus. Unlike other publications, this text focuses on the active role that indigenous peoples take in the industry, and uses international case studies and experiences to provide a global context to illustrate best practice and aid comparison. First published over ten years ago the editors, Butler and Hinch, have thoroughly revised and updated the text to bring together a new collection of contributions and case studies from recognised international authors and those with first hand experiences in this area. Divided into five main sections, the text looks at this topic under the following headings: * Involvement: Uses case studies to discuss and compare such as 'campfire' programmes in east Africa, and the employment of indigenous peoples as guides, amongst other cases, * Turbulence: Host guest relationships, conflicts on communities and contrasting strategies and results of tourism in indigenous villages in South Africa * Issues: Discusses issues such as authenticity, religious beliefs and managing indigenous tourism in a fragile environment * Progress: Looks at tourism education, tourism and cultural survival and examples of the policy and practice of indigenous tourism. * Conclusions: Five contributions from indigenous people on North America, Australasia and Europe to discuss implications and experiences. Each section uses international case studies from, for example, Australia, New Zealand, Nepal, Namibia, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and South America.

This is the story of a German-born executive, JK, who immigrated to the United States to aid Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, Microsofts top honchos to build a commanding software empire. He led Microsofts OEM division that was responsible for sales to PC manufacturers, and drove the deals that made Microsoft Windows the worlds dominating operating system. Find out how much resolve, fortitude, and perseverance were needed to make that part of the PC revolution come true; what strategies were employed to win the Internet browser war; how IBM was beaten; what drove Apple to the brink of disaster; and how shady politicians and hapless competitors eventually goaded the Feds to ensnare Microsoft in a web of antitrust accusations. Peek behind the curtain and be the first-ever outsider to glimpse into Microsofts power nexus. Understand how Microsofts nearly mystical marketing shrewdness and tech prowess are intensely propelled by paranoia and fear of missing the next computing paradigm shift. The press labeled JK Bill Gatess enforcer. No wonder he was called upon as a pivotal antitrust trial witness to defend what loathing competitors labeled Microsofts evil empire. Follow what experts believe was the most protracted, and fierce trial of the century. Relive the courtroom drama, and read the authors critical analysis of the judicial proceedings and their aftermaths. Losing that trial partially started Microsofts demise, and power struggles from within quickened it. Get to know the real forces that altered Microsofts resolve-and fortitude-dominated leadership style. Find out if Windows 8 could be an inflection point, conjuring enough magic to ring in a renaissance and attract the Facebook generation to a born-again modern Microsoft.

King Arthur was as true as life, as this book proves with documentary evidence. It also incorporates a whole body of new material that shows that Monmouth was, basically, right. The Arthurian legend can be fully rationalized by uncontroversial Insular and Continental sources which trace his birth to ca. AD 449, his departure from his kingdom in 466 and his battles across France. This book’s “Riothamus” does not, however, vanish from history but moves east and, in 476, conquers Rome, much as Monmouth confusingly said. In 489 Arthur’s name appears on an Italian legal document, but by 495 he had returned to Britain to fight his famous Battle of Badon, 14 miles east of Bath. By tracking the history of the Scirians, the conquerors of Rome, through the material culture they left in the towns they settled, this book finds a perfect match with the places mentioned in the “Arthurian Legend.” Use of the right historical records allow the enigma to be untangled clearly.

‘If you did not think that gallium and iridium could move you, this superb book will change your mind’ The Times In Uncle Tungsten, Oliver Sacks evokes, with warmth and wit, his upbringing in wartime England. He tells of the large science-steeped family who fostered his early fascination with chemistry. There follow his years at boarding school where, though unhappy, he developed the intellectual curiosity that would shape his later life. And we hear of his return to London, an emotionally bereft ten-year-old who found solace in his passion for learning. Uncle Tungsten radiates all the delight and wonder of a boy’s adventures, and is an unforgettable portrait of an extraordinary young mind.
