Beschreibung

This volume explores recent developments in the practice of hospitality, as well as the curious, precarious relationship between guests and their hosts. Drawing from personal interactions with an aging innkeeper called Herr Klaus and modern Airbnb hostess Gretchen, Amitai Touval offers a touching and illuminating account of how the rise of Airbnb has forged new standards of generosity, hostility, and accountability. An Anthropological Study of Hospitality is a must-read for anyone who has wondered about the intricate social cues involved in such a seemingly simple exchange.

The text offers new insight on hospitality and its anthropological nature, situating as a more than interesting piece for social scientists interested in these types of matters. (Maximiliano E. Korstanje, Hospitality & Society, Vol. 09 (2), 2019)
