Klappentext

"Leisure and Tourism Landscapes" draws on a range of interdisciplinary subject areas, such as leisure and tourism studies and gender studies, to supplement analyzes from geography, sociology, history and literature. It promises to redefine the way we view our surroundings. The first half of the book focuses on different 'ways of seeing' or representing landscape. The second half of the book examines different forms of productive consumption in leisure and tourism.
