This book was inspired by the strongly increasing cross-fertilization between anthropological research and tourism studies. It provides a rich and comprehensive overview of key topics within contemporary international research related to the anthropology of tourism, including theoretical and methodological issues, field studies, ethnographic museum policy and the anthropological contributions to tourism policy research and cultural tourism studies.

These contents make the book suitable for researchers, lecturers and students in the fields of anthropology and tourism, as well as for policymakers and practitioners working in the culture and museum sectors, the tourism industry and government service. Thanks to the special attention the editors paid to unlocking the texts for interested laymen, culture seekers and travel lovers will also appreciate the wealth of observations, descriptions and analyses that will undoubtedly broaden their outlook on people and places around the globe.
