T̀his book is one of several indications that the sociology of tourism is on the move. these articles raise relevant important themes in the study of tourism. The contributors to this very readable book provide valuable insights, many of which have been derived from empirical research, that should interest anyone involved in the study of international tourism.

Worlds of difference by Said Arjomand( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can differences be understood in social theory through comparisons, and how should social theory relate to regional studies to do so? This question has been prevalent within the sociological field for over a century, but is becoming increasingly important in a globalised age in which cultural borders are constantly challenged and rapidly changing. In this collection, Arjomand and Reis illuminate the importance of exploring spatial, cultural and intellectual differences beyond generalizations, attempting to understand diversity in itself as it takes shape across the world
