This book has sought to provide a broad debate as a means of critically assessing the important developments in contemporary tourism. It has explored the ways in which new forms of tourism are interrelated with notions of sustainability and development and are reflected in the Third World. This approach has enabled us to view and analyse tourism in a broad context and to stress that tourism is not the sole focus of our discussion. Instead, we set out to explore the way in which sociocultural, economic and political processes operate on and through tourism; in other words, tourism is a mirror of these wider processes and a means of critically engaging in debates centred upon notions of ‘development’. In our view, it was inappropriate to provide further analysis and evidence of the now well-documented environmental, economic and sociocultural impacts of tourism.
