Key readings There is an alarming array of tourism books that attempt to explain it from various perspectives. ’s Tourism Principles and Practice provides a very straightforward view of the matter as does the fourth edition of Holloway’s The Business of Tourism.

The metaphor of war is interesting given that Keesing and Keesing’s original work was done at the height of the Cold War. 2. Keesing and Keesing finish their description of this approach to the study of society by stating that social structure ANTHROPOLOGY 17 and the broader environment has a relationship which is indirect, constructed by a variety of ideologies and negotiation, the realisation of which, as they say: enables us to break away from ‘equilibrium models’ and views of social structures as ‘frozen’ that hamper our understanding of change, and it connects the abstract formal structure of ‘the system’ with the dynamics of social process and individual psychology.

Bryan Turner writing on post-modernism, globalism and Islam, has this to say on cultural tourism: Tourist fantasy permits the self to assume diverse social roles in exotic settings; tourism invents and demands empathy to play out short-term fantasy roles. Tourism tends to make cultures into museums, as cultural phenomena which can be viewed as quaint, peculiar and local. Tourism paradoxically is a quest for authentic local cultures, but the tourist industry, by creating the illusion of authenticity, in fact reinforces the experience of social and cultural simulation.
