Commercial Nationalism and Tourism : Selling the National Story Hardback
Edited by Leanne White
Part of the Aspects of Tourism series
This book combines academic analysis and critical exploration to examine national narratives in the context of tourism and events around the world.
It explores how particular narratives are woven to tell (and sell) a national story.
By deconstructing images of the nation, it closely examines how national texts create key archival imagery that can promote tourism and events while also shaping national identity.
It investigates the complex relationship between state appropriation of marketing strategies and the commercial use of nationalist discourses.
The book aims to demystify the ways in which the nation is imagined by key organisers and organisations and then communicated to millions.
