Paige McClanahan The New Tourist recensie

  • “Opens a world of conversation about the role of travel…McClanahan’s approach is to sit with strangers from both sides of the argument—those cautious of over-tourism and those excited for tourism’s expansion—resulting in a comprehensive understanding.” (Booklist)
  • “Engaging and thoughtful….An instructive engagement with the world of travel writing and a first-class exemplar of its practice.” (Kirkus Reviews)
  • “Insightful … [A] smart balance of informed critique and hopeful discussions of the travel industry’s potential for positive change. It’s a trip worth taking.” (Publishers Weekly)

Flaptekst van het boek over de geschiedenis van het massatoerisme

A brilliantly evocative, surprising, and page-turning exploration of how tourism has shaped the world, for better and for worse—essential reading for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the implications of their wanderlust.

Through deep and perceptive dispatches from tourist spots around the globe—from Hawaii to Saudi Arabia, Amsterdam to Angkor Wat—The New Tourist lifts the veil on an industry that accounts for one in ten jobs worldwide and generates nearly ten percent of global GDP. How did a once-niche activity become the world’s most important means of contact across cultures? When does tourism destroy the soul of a city, and when does it offer a place a new lease on life? Is “last chance tourism” prompting a powerful change in perspective, or driving places we love further into the ground?

Filled with revelations about an industry that shapes how we view the world, The New Tourist spotlights painful truths but also delivers a message of hope: that the right kind of tourism—and the right kind of tourist—can be a powerful force for good.
