Heritage, Tourism and Society Information

This volume is a timely examination of the issues sometimes contentious, involved in the "exploitation" of heritage as an element of tourism. Each well-researched chapter, written by an expert in the area of study, looks at one or more of the wide range of sensitive aspects - such as conservation and preservation, tourism as a threat, and heritage as a resource. This book is concerned with the sites themselves, with their impact on their localities, with the providers and managers who seek to present heritage and with the visitors who are drawn to heritage places.
