This guide demystifies the often invisible impacts of global tourism,
one of the biggest industries in the world. From labour conditions to
development by stealth; to the role of elites and the cultural impacts
on both the visitor and the visited.<br />It
also takes in themes like the gap year, the role of travel and vacations in western cultures, and examines the <i>happy smiling faces</i> syndrome and asks whether this is just a reworking of old colonial
relationships.<br /><br />ABOUT THE AUTHOR<br />Pamela Nowicka is a journalist and consultant who has working with organizations such as Tourism Concern, a charity that works with communities in destination countries to reduce social and environmental problems. She has written
on numerous tourism and ethics subjects.<br /><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;
