about

Critical in style,From Heritage to Terrorism: Regulating Tourism in an Age of Uncertaintyexamines the law and its role in shaping and defining tourism and the tourist experience. Using a broad range of legal documents and other materials from a variety of disciplines, it surveys how the underlying values of tourism often conflict with a concern for human rights, cultural heritage and sustainable environments.

Departing from the view that within this context the law is simply relegated to dealing the ¿hard edges¿ of the tourist industry and tourist behaviour, the authors explore:

  • the ways that the law shapes the nature of tourism and how it can do this
  • the need for a more focused role for law in tourism
  • the law¿s current and potential role in dealing with the various tensions for tourism in the panic created by the spread of global terrorism.

Addressing a range of fundamental issues underlying global conflict and tourism, this thoroughly up-to-date and topical book is an essential read for all those interested in tourism and law.
