Synopsis: This book focuses on ethnic and minority communities in urban contexts and the ways in which their cultures are represented in tourism development. It offers a multi-disciplinary approach which draws on examples and case studies of ethnic and minority communities and cultural tourism development from all around the world, including slums in India, favelas in Brazil, Chinatowns in Australia, Jewish quarters in Central and Eastern Europe, ethnic villages in China, the African district of Brussels, the gay quarter in Cape Town and a desert town in Israel. It offers a positive perspective on ethnic and minority cultures and communities at a time when social and political support is lacking in many countries. This book will be a useful resource for those studying and researching cultural and urban tourism, urban planning and development, community studies and urban and cultural geography.
This book is a vital tool for exploring the complex issues of fostering multiculturalism, celebrating diversity and engaging difference. It offers insights into the interface between ethnic and minority groups, tourists, urban planners and government authorities. The chapters, written by authors from around the world, reveal insights into power, domination and resistance and open up a promising avenue of research. --Freya Higgins-Desbiolles, University of South Australia, Australia
This is an excellent and comprehensive account of a critical field in tourism research, stretching its boundaries to key issues in urbanism, and will appeal to academics and place managers alike. The chapters do a great job of documenting how the sticky mobilities of migrations and diasporas and the fast mobility of tourism juxtapose in - and negotiate - places, in ways that may be subversive or strident, but are ultimately generative of change and discourse. --Antonio Paolo Russo, University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain
Tourism is an essentializing practice where complex cultures are compressed for transitory consumption. This can be liberating or oppressive but is always rooted in extant power relations that spill over into the touristic realm. Diekmann and Smith do an excellent job of bringing together international cases that highlight the fine balance between consensual projection of minority cultures or their marginalisation. --Mike Robinson, University of Birmingham, UK
