This book attempts to confront spatial, performative and cultural interrelations between tourism and social economic behavior by providing a critical platform for the articulation of touring consumption in our contemporary world. Tourism has become a significant area of scholarship especially given the industry's product development opportunities on a global scale. However, the emphasis placed on such research has largely been from a supply-side perspective. What needs to be explored is the shift towards the agencies of the tourist or traveler as consumer and consumption as being embodied as a moment of practice in continuous states of touring.
Stephan Sonnenburg is Professor for Creativity and Performative Management at the Karlshochschule International University in Karlsruhe, Germany. He is Dean of the Faculty 'Management & Performance'.
