About this product
- DescriptionThis work explores the history of tourism in the American West and examines its effects on both the tourists and the places and people they visit. Scholars join government and National Park Service professionals to investigate the dilemmas that tourism poses for western communities, from ecomic and environmental questions to cultural change. The selections are organized around three broad topics: scholarly perceptions of tourism, tourists, and those toured upon; tourism in its historical context, including an assessment of its cultural impact on communities and on tourists themselves; and the history and impact of tourism on the West's national parks, with particular emphasis on efforts to maintain the delicate balance between natural preservation and public enjoyment.
- Author BiographyDavid Wrobel is associate professor of history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and coeditor of Many Wests: Place, Culture, and Regional Identity, also from Kansas. Patrick Long is professor of tourism management at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and author of Win, Lose or Draw? Gambling with America's Small Towns.
