Anthropocene Ecologies brings political ecology and tourism studies to bear on the Anthropocene. Through a collective examination of political ecologies of the Anthropocene by leading scholars in anthropology, geography and tourism studies, the book addresses critical themes of gender, health, conservation, agriculture, climate change, disaster, coastal marine management and sustainability. Each chapter theoretically and empirically unravels entanglements of tourism, nature and imagination to expose the political-ecological drivers of the Anthropocene as a material and symbolic force and its deepening integration with tourism. Grounded in ethnographic and qualitative research, the volume is interdisciplinary in scope, yet linked in its shared focus on the political threat as well as the social potential of the Anthropocene and its imaginaries. This collection contributes to emerging scholarship on tourism, sustainability and global environmental change in the current geological epoch. Anthropocene Ecologies will be of great interest to political ecology focused scholars of tourism, socio-environmental change and the Anthropocene. The chapters were originally published as a special issue in the Journal of Sustainable Tourism.

Shangri La--a land of enchantment. No! The story location--Dutch New Guinea (now Irian Jaya, Indonesia), one of the last unexplored frontiers. In 1954, missionaries preceded government control to live & work among primitive Stone Age people with cannibalistic customs. Their lifestyle included violence & killing. The Title WINGS... is a clue to a central theme--aviation. No roads. No trails. Initial forays utilized amphibious or float planes until miniature airstrips were carved out with digging sticks & stone axes. Dramatic events related include: The 1945 crash of a C-47-- three survivors are rescued by glider from Shangri La. A recent interview with one survivor provides accurate details. Two missionaries killed by tribal carriers (from official Dutch report). Michael Rockefeller missing on the south coast November 1961. Sharks, crocodiles, or cannibals? The author & husband were eyewitnesses to many of the events, 1954 to 1962. This account is true, accurate & unembellished. John Miller, Mission Aviation in Irian Jaya writes, "...an intensely documented, detailed & accurate book. Thank you for a fine book!" Order from E.

"Spurred by a desire to travel the world, Ezra Cantrell joined the Foreign Service and saw it all- Thousand islands of Indonesia, soaring minarets in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan's bulbous blue domes, and many pleasant tree-filled city streets around the world. His journeys traversed the continents casting a spell on any traveler's imagination. Along with Sacha his Indonesian spouse, their magical journey is a measure for adventure. And then the ragged wounds of life strike Sacha with an emotional disorder and strip her of a fulfilling life experience. Her obsessive ritual is matched only by the lecherous fetish of a French diplomat who falls in love with her nineteen-year-old daughter. The mishmash adds a disquieting twist to an already sick family dynamic. Lost in the shuffle, Sacha struggles as she trails her husband on international assignments. With each move she starts again in a different city. Ezra finds solace from the family turmoil, as he escapes on assignments and soon experiments with his sexual curiosity. Tormented by his secret desires, he struggles to stave off the gremlins. Along comes a sociopath brimming with wicked desires who spews a disturbing shroud over an American university campus. A delusional love affair sprouts, a bruised ego ruptures and a sick obsession with a sadistic bent is unleashed with dreadful outcomes. What appears to be isolated slayings soon turn into the handiwork of a deviant mind setting off an intercontinental jealous rage that chills the mind in this fictional drama"--T.p. verso.

The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast. Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.
