International tourism : identity and change by Marie-Françoise Lanfant( )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book broadens the discussion and challenges the traditional paradigm which presents tourism as an outside force - independent of any cultural or symbolic system - making an impact on an indigenous society. The contributors to International Tourism reconceptualize the local and the global, avoiding such crude oppositions as centre v. periphery, modern v. traditional, macro v. micro and North v. South. Instead, they demonstrate that the local cannot be understood without the global, and that the global can never be isolated from the regional setting within which it operates. Providing new insights into theories of touristic practice, this volume places tourism within the same framework as other transnational global studies. In addition, it offers a sophisticated contribution to the debate on identity and otherness, touching upon the fundamental issues of 'us' and 'them', collectivity and difference

The ISA handbook in contemporary sociology : conflict, competition, cooperation by International Sociological Association( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Handbook is the first published by the ISA in this millennium; representing the fruit of in-depth dynamics it invites us to give all necessary attention to the concepts of conflict, cooperation and competition. By reflecting on the possible articulations of these concepts and attempting to apply them in diverse fields of social science the editors give voice to those who are studying the world as it is and perform the service of returning a set of concepts, approaches or paradigms to their legitimate place
Worlds of difference by Said Amir Arjomand( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 875 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
