Synopsis

Tourism, Leisure, Sport Critical Perspectives by Geoffrey Lawrence

Tourism, Leisure, Sport: Critical Perspectives is an up-to-date and provocative collection of essays for undergraduate and research students. It is aimed at all those involved in studying or teaching tourism, leisure and sport, sociology, cultural studies and related areas. In this text, the editors and contributors make a fresh, ideas-based appraisal of a dynamic field of inquiry. It gives unusual prominence to the critical study of tourism, a subject of ever-increasing economic, cultural, social and educational significance in Australia. Five major themes runt through the book: inequality, globalisation, culture and authenticity, the Sydney 2000 Olympics and 'the margins'.
