The original edition of Native Tours provided a much-needed overview and analysis of anthropology s contributions to tourism as an emerging field of study. Such a cultural perspective illuminated key ideas surrounding worldwide host guest relationships and the impacts, both negative and positive, of tourism as one of the world s largest industries. Applying a characteristically uncluttered, authoritative writing style alongside an exceptional command of the relevant literature, Chambers updates, refines, and extends the original concise work. He identifies new or refashioned trends such as green tourism, community-based tourism, heritage and cultural tourism, and domestic tourism in developing nations, as well as discusses how local prejudices influence and often distort views of tourism. Three detailed case studies originating in the American Southwest, the Tirolean Alps, and Belize illustrate the social, cultural, economic, political, and environmental costs and benefits of tourism.
