About this book

This book attempts to confront spatial, performative and cultural interrelations between tourism and social economic behavior by providing a critical platform for the articulation of touring consumption in our contemporary world. Tourism has become a significant area of scholarship especially given the industry’s product development opportunities on a global scale. However, the emphasis placed on such research has largely been from a supply-side perspective. What needs to be explored is the shift towards the agencies of the tourist or traveler as consumer and consumption as being embodied as a moment of practice in continuous states of touring.
