Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Cultural Tourism in Latin America contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations and the acknowledgements. Tourism-'voluntary, temporary travel for rest or recreation', as Lynn Meisch defines it in the book-is an increasingly important source of income for both states and local populations in Latin America. It can be seen as an integrated element of globalization in which international travel and cultural discovery have become part of global consumption patterns. The authors argue that a local perspective is the only way to understand the consequences of cultural tourism, and show that it is impossible to separate the cultural, economic and political elements of the processes of change that are engendered by tourism development. To understand these elements in conjunction, a multidisciplinary approach is more than necessary.
