Tourism and National Identity : Heritage and Nationhood in Scotland Paperback / softback
Part of the Tourism and Cultural Change series
This book explores the role of tourism as a means to express 'nation' and 'nationhood'.
Based on field research in southwest and central Scotland it shows how various historical accounts, cultural icons and images, events and celebrations create a meaning of the Scottish nation.
It examines the narratives, either explicit or implicit, produced at heritage-related tourism sites and how these become interwoven with the ideology of a nation.
This volume will be of use to researchers and students in tourism and heritage studies, Scottish studies, culture and identity, nationalism and national identity; as well as to tourism and heritage industry professionals and policy-makers.
