What is heritage and who owns it? This book explores definitions, constructions, and representations of heritage and national identity within the context of heritage tourism in Southeast Asia. Some major themes include conflicts between heritage tourism and conservation, globalization and cultural hybridization, and local needs related to heritage sites. There is special focus on the roles of government institutions and international agencies in heritage tourism and related policymaking. The book arises from and expands a special issue of the journal Indonesia and the Malay World. The book's international contributors come from the fields of anthropology, tourism management, social anthropology, Southeast Asian studies, urban planning, environmental management, and history. It will be of interest to those in tourism studies, governmental development, and planning. Hitchcock is affiliated with the IMI University Center, Luzern.
