Summary
"Within the last century, tourism has exploded to become the world's fastest growing industry and its largest employer, and it is expected to double in size within just the next decade. In Tourists, Larry Krotz explains how tourism has evolved from Thomas Cook to Club Med, where it's at today, and where it's headed in the next century. Visiting destinations as diverse and tourism-dependent as Belize, North Dakota, Germany, and Kenya, Tourists explores the profound cultural, ecological, and economic impacts that mass international tourism is having on almost every country on earth." "Adventure used to be the cornerstone of a traveler's experience, but the current demand for inconvenience-free, responsibility-free travel is threatening the very sights people spend billions of dollars a year to visit. Buildings may crumble, paintings may peel, and habitats may change with the passage of time, but the decline of many of the world's greatest monuments, both manmade and natural, is being unintentionally hastened by tourism. What can, or should, be done to remedy it?"--Jacket
