"This will become a very important publication in the field of tourism. It is unique." - Jafar Jafari, Series Editor. The aim of the book is to use personal histories of pioneers to describe and analyze the emergence of tourism study among anthropologically oriented scholars (those acting as informants among the earliest to work on the subject of tourism and continue still). The editor, besides contributing his own personal history and the introductory chapters 1 and 2, has included a concluding analytic chapter that will make some general sense out of the comments of the participating informants. Dr. Nash is a well recognised scholar in the fields of anthropology and tourism. The field of tourism studies is growing exponentially, and this book fits with this growth. It uses personal histories of pioneers to analyze tourism study. It contributes to literature in the growing field of tourism studies. It is well suited for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students but accessible for the general public.
