The Ethics of Tourism Development (Routledge/Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism, and Mobility.)
Mick SmithISBN: 0415266866;
Book DescriptionThe Ethics of Tourism Development draws upon a variety of important philosophical traditions to develop an original perspective on the relations between ethical, economic and aesthetic values in a tourism context. It considers the ethical/political issues arising in many areas of tourism development, including the profound cultural and environmental impacts on tourist destinations; the reciprocity in host-guest relations; the distribution of benefits and revenues; and the moral implications of issues like sex tourism, staged authenticity and travel to oppressive regimes. The interweaving of theory and practice is facilitated by the use of text boxes to explain key terms in ethics, politics, and tourism development and by drawing on contemporary case studies from South Africa, Mexico, Zambia, Honduras, Ethiopia and Madagascar to illuminate the ethical problems associated with tourism.
