Product description


"Tourism and Citizenship is a welcome and much needed scholarly intervention into the complex relationships between global mobility, human rights and travelling cultures. Bianchi and Stephenson do an excellent job bringing together interdisciplinary insights and putting them to work in an exciting and broad-ranging study that does not shy away from difficult and pressing political concerns. Indeed, central to this book is an important interrogation of how the supposedly inclusive values of freedom, rights, and cosmopolitanism often reproduce entrenched asymmetries in the global order. This book will be essential reading for students and scholars in Geography, Politics, Law and International Relations who are seeking to expose global power relations in unexpected places, but it will also be indispensable for Tourism Studies scholars asking important ethical and political questions that exceed traditional concerns about economic growth and expansion." - Dr. Debbie Lisle, School of Politics, International Studies & Philosophy, Queen's University Belfast

"This book provides the first full-scale examination of the contradictory market and political forces that shape the "freedom to travel" today. The authors conceptually map movements of international tourists, migrants, refugees, and "illegals" onto emerging geo-political realities of hyper inequality both within and between nations, the dramatic reversal of fortune of a number of formerly "third world" economies, terrorism, and new forms of travel restriction. They challenge axiomatic assumptions about positive psychic, cultural and economic benefits of tourism and the relationship of increasing tourism to democratization, international understanding, and world peace. A number of unpleasant facts about current global travel patterns appear all the more clearly as they are bathed in the bright light of the drive to make unrestricted international travel a universal human right."- Professor Dean MacCannell, Environmental Design and Landscape Architecture, University of California, Davis

"...we strongly recommend the book to tourism scholars, students and all those interested in knowing more about the unfolding relationship between tourism and notions of citizenship, all the more so for the opportunity of raising a much needed debate." – Inge Hermann and Ruud Welten, European Journal of Tourism Research
