In the interest of illustrating how approaches to the study of tourism in a local society can be respectful of its specific social complexity, I will evoke the history and culture of Ladakh and focus in particular on the effects of tourism in relation to the other main factors of social change in the region. The most important of these are the State as well as market imperatives. For reasons of methodological strategy, I have chosen to integrate the question of tourism into a historical account of Ladakh's economy and development, rather than trying to fit Ladakh into the general problem of tourist development. This assuming that an approach which takes history into account is more methodologically sound than the other alternative.
