Travel, Tourism and Identity addresses the psychological and social adjustments that occur when people make contact with others outside their social, cultural, or linguistic groups. Whether such contact is the result of tourism, seeking exile, or relocating abroad, the volumeas contributors demonstrate how oneas identity, cultural assumptions, and worldview can be brought into question. In some cases, the traveler finds that bridging the social and cultural gap between himself and the new society is fairly easy. In other cases, the traveler discovers that reorienting himself requires absorbing a new cultural history and traditions. The contributors argue that making these adjustments will surely enhance the traveleras or touristas experience; otherwise the traveler or tourist will be at risk of becoming a marginalized figure, one disconnected from the society that surrounds him. This latest volume in the Culture a Civilization series features a collection of essays on travel and tourism. The essays cover a range of topics from historical travels to modern social identities. They discuss ancient travels, contemporary travels in Europe, Africa and sustainable eco-tourism, and the politics of tourism. Essays also address experiences of Grenadaas aSpice Islanda identity, and the effects of globalization and migrations on personal identity.Weale, Anne. 1981, 1982Passage to Paxos.
