Heritage and Tourism in "the Global Village"
How can heritage sites be protected from, yet still enjoyed by, ever increasing numbers of tourists? What are tourist operators' responsibilities, intellectually as well as to the monuments and museums which provide their attractions? This book explores these and various questions, as well as identifying a host of practicalities among a plenitude of examples from around the world, specifying good and bad practice in the inevitable, often uncomprehending culture clash. The discussion, including such sensitive issues as ethnicity, loot, eco-tourism and interpretive realism is firmly bedded in the concept of a dynamic global village where all the inhabitants can and do visit each other and are everywhere faced with the challenge of communication.
