Tourism-one of the world's largest industries-has long been appreciated for its economic benefits, but in this volume tourism receives a unique systematic scrutiny as a medium for cultural exchange. Modern developments in technology and industry, together with masterful advertising, have created temporarily leisured people with the desire and the means to travel.

Hosts and Guests book. A great idea, and an important contribution to the anthropological study of tourism. I thought the ways in which the various article writers incorporated the theoretical constructs set out at the beginning (and end) of the volume was of mixed quality and volume and I wish they behaved more consistently on that front.

Tourism-one of the world's largest industries-has long been appreciated for its economic benefits, but in this volume . In contrast to the dramatic economic transformations, the social repercussions of tourism are subtle and often recognized only by the indigenous peoples themselves and by the anthropologists who have studied them before and after the introduction of tourism.

This is the 2nd edition of a key original work on the anthropology of tourism, and has historical significance. Today, it seems basic and overly focused on tourism typologies, as well as on "impacts", but at the time of its publication it was carving out an entire new area for anthropological work...and some of the chapters continue to have relevance for current day studies, particularly the chapter by Graburn on tourism as ritual and the chapter by Nash (Tourism as Neocolonialism). This work has influenced two subsequent generations of work, and a host of newer tourism ethnographies. A more current version of this text, which addresses some newer approaches ethnographically, is Gmelch's _Tourists and Tourism: A Reader (2nd edition)_...Graburn's original article from _Hosts and Guests_ appears in Gmelch's newer reader (2nd edition) as do chapters by many of the key players of that generation and the next generation of anthropologists who study tourism (Ed Bruner, Jill Sweet, Denise Brennan, AManda Stronza, Kathleen Adams, Hazel Tucker) as well as chapters by a few noted sociologists and a historian of tourism (Dean MacCannell, Orval Lofgren).

Anthropology really needed this book: after decades of ignoring the interractions between hosts and guests, a book that bridges the gap has become especially necessary. Although written in 1977, and a little theoretically dated, the book provided a sound foundation for more recent (but equally readable and enjoyable) anthropological anthologies of tourism (see, for example, Greg Ringer's "Destinations: cultural landscapes of tourism").
This book details in diverse localities, from Eskimo communities to Polynesia, the complex interractions between traveller and local, between the observers and the observed. A carefully written, edited, and nuanced book.
