              Since the 1990s, tourism has become not only a major economic activity in Brazil, but has also attracted many educational and research interests. Growing interest about Brazil is in part related to the growing prominence of the country as an new economic power as well as the risi...ng numbers of international tourists and increase in domestic tourism. In addition Brazil will be hosting two major sport events in the years ahead, i.e. the Soccer World Cup, in 2014, and the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, in 2016. Brazil offers many cultural and natural attractions but similarly to many other developing countries, it still struggles to take advantage of tourism due to the lack of infrastructure and social and economic conditions that inhibit the proper planning and development of tourism in Brazil. This book provides a full examination of tourism in Brazil, by critically reviewing its development, management and social and economic issues the country faces to further develop tourism in this region with a particular focus on the major sports events that it will be hosting in the near future. By doing so the book considers important development issues such as reducing the impacts of tourism on the environment & community, transport infrastructure and how destinations can rebrand themselves to intended markets. These issues are explored from a wide range of tourism destination examples from nature based to more cultural and heritage sites. Where possible the book also makes comparisons to tourism development in other developing countries to offer insight into Brazil's future development in terms of tourism. Based on cutting edge research conducted by Brazilian academics, this original and timely book will be of interest to students, researchers and academics in the areas of Tourism, Geography and related disciplines.

              Lifestyle Migration and Residential Tourism represent a major trend in individualized societies worldwide, which is attracting a rapidly growing interest from the academic community. This volume for the first time, critically analyses the spatial, social and political consequence...s of such leisure-oriented mobilities and migrations. The book approaches the topic from a multidisciplinary and international perspective, unifying different branches of research, such as lifestyle migration, amenity migration, retirement migration, and second home tourism. By covering a variety of regions and landscapes such as mountain and coastal areas, rural and inland communities this volume productively engages with the formal and analytical variations of the phenomenon resulting in an enriching debate at the intersection of different areas of research. Amongst others, topics like political contest and civic participation of lifestyle migrants, their impacts on local communities, social tensions and inequalities induced by the phenomenon, as well as modes of transnational living, home and belonging will be thoroughly explored. This thought provoking volume will provide deep analytical and conceptual insights into the contested geographies of lifestyle migration and further knowledge into the spatial, social and political consequences of leisure-oriented mobilities. It will be valuable reading for students, researchers and academics from a plethora of academic disciplines.

              The inherent mobility of tourists and consequent relative ephemerality of contact between the visitor and the visited tourism phenomenon have specific characteristics that challenge the usual fieldwork practices of the social and physical sciences. This book focuses on this compo...nent of contemporary tourist research.

              Tourism, Religion and Pilgrimage in Jerusalem
               

              Tourism, Religion and Pilgrimage in Jerusalem (Hardback)

              Jerusalem is a city with a singular nature. Home to three religions, it contains spiritual meaning for people the world over; it is at once a tourist destination and a location with a complex political reality. Tourism, therefore, is an integral part of Jerusalem's development an...d its political conflicts. The book traces tourism and pilgrimage to Jerusalem from the late Ottoman era, through the British Mandate, during the period of the divided city, and to the reunification of the city under Israeli rule. Throughout, the city's evolution is shown to be intertwined with its tourist industry, as tourist sites, accommodations, infrastructure, and services transform the city's structures and open spaces. At the same time, tourism is wielded by various parties in an effort to gain political recognition, to bolster territorial control, or to garner support. The city's future and the role tourism can play in it are examined. While the construction of a security fence will have many implications on Jerusalem's tourist industry, steps are proposed to minimize the effects of the security fence and optimize tourism. Written by leading academics, this title will be valuable reading students, academics and researchers in the fields of tourism, religious studies, geography, history, cultural studies, and anthropology.
