This collection of eleven essays on tourism examines the expectations of tourists and host communities through an anthropological lens, exploring the ways in which the preconceived desires of both groups shape the interactions between visitor and visited. Topics discussed include confrontations with the unexpected in a Turkish community, resistance in Native American cultural tourism, experience and expectations on the Cuban dance floor, and holidays to imagine war at the Western Front battlefields. Many chapters are expanded case studies and provide primary source material as well as analysis. Contributors to the volume include academics in anthropological disciplines primarily from US and UK institutions. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
