About this product
- DescriptionPolitical ecomy, in its various guises and transfigurations, is a research philosophy that presents both social commentary and theoretical progress and is concerned with a number of different topics: politics, regulation and governance, production systems, social relations, inequality and development amongst many others. As a critical theory, political ecomy seeks to provide an understanding of societies - and of the structures and social relations that form them - in order to evoke social change toward more equitable conditions. Despite the early influence of critical development studies and political ecomy on tourism research, political ecomy has received relatively little attention in tourism research. Political Ecomy and Tourism the first volume to bring together different theoretical perspectives and discourse in political ecomy related to tourism. Written by leading scholars, the text is organised into three sequential Parts, linked by the principle that 'the political' and 'the ecomic' are intimately connected. Part one presents different approaches to political ecomy, including Marxist political ecomy, regulation, comparative political ecomy, commodity chain research and alternative political ecomies; Part two links key themes of political ecomy, such as class, gender, labour, development and consumption, to tourism; and Part three examines the political ecomy at various geographical scales and focuses on the outcomes and processes of the political act of planning and managing tourism production. This engaging volume provides insights and alternative critical perspectives on political ecomy theory to expand discussions of tourism development and policy in the future. Political Ecomy and Tourism is a valuable text for students, researchers and academics interested in Tourism and related disciplines.
