The study of tourism as a complex social phenomenon is growing in importance as it receives recognition as a force far more significant than economic, environmental, and social analyses convey. This volume explores the significance of tourism as a significant phenomenon in both generating and receiving societies, examining methods and cases that demonstrate, develop, and affirm tourism's essentially visual nature. Tourism-related methodology such as photographs, souvenirs and advertising material are used to discuss findings.
