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

22 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2,122 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

Explaining Yugoslavia by John B Allcock( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In one of the most complete narratives on the subject, John B. Allcock traverses the politics, economics, demography, and culture of the former Yugoslavia, examining and making sense of the region's conflicted past and troubling present. Though many think of the Balkans as a uniquely volatile region, the author asserts that the continuities in Balkan history mirror the processes of development that have occurred in other societies and are part of the ongoing process of global modernization."--BOOK JACKET
