Tourism and Archaeology : Sustainable Meeting Grounds Paperback / softback

Edited by Cameron Jean Walker, Neil Carr

Description

The global popularity and lucrative potential of tourism has made sustainability a major concern for archaeologists, site managers, politicians, local communities, tourism officials, and other stakeholders.

This book establishes new, interdisciplinary ground for tourism and archaeology that will foster a new generation of sustainable thinking and practice.

First, three teams of co-authors from both disciplines tackle key conceptual dilemmas: exploration vs. exploitation, education vs. entertainment, and cultural sensitivity vs. embeddedness. Then, international case studies examine site development, marketing, community relations, and other on-the-ground examples of heritage work.

The volume launches an important new era of collaboration in this growing field.
