Cultural Tourism in Southern Africa, Hardback Book


This volume provides an accessible overview of cultural tourism in southern Africa.

It examines the utilisation of culture in southern African tourism and the related impacts, possibilities and challenges from deep and wide-ranging perspectives.

The chapters use case studies to showcase some of the cultural tourism which occurs in the region and link to concepts such as authenticity, commodification, the tourist gaze and `Otherness', heritage, sustainability and sustainable livelihoods.

The authors scrutinise both positive and negative impacts of cultural tourism throughout the book and explore issues including the definition of community, ethical considerations, empowerment, gender, participation and inequality.

The book will be a useful resource for students and researchers of tourism, geography, anthropology and cultural studies.
