Thank you! A highly observant overview of the modern tourist industry which compares international vacationers to the barbarian invaders because of the cultural disintegration that follows in their wake. Turner and Ash concentrate on the pattern of disruption in the sunbelt colonies--the decline of local agriculture, displacement of native industry, rampant inflation, dictatorial taxi drivers, a general mushrooming of resentments.
In Turner and Ash famously described the emergence of the 'pleasure periphery' in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and South Pacific as a manifestation of the worldwide diffusion of mass tourism.
