About this book

Provides an overview of tourism and looks at the wide-ranging issues that are interrelated to tourism's affects upon the earth including: transnational corporations, globalization, world banking and financial institutions, free trade agreements, and politics.
`Instead of simply raining on the global parade of well-meaning eco-tourists, McLaren's pathfinding book serves as an indispensable resource guide for conscientious travelers as well as an early warning to the unrepentant global tourist industry.' Chet Tchozewski, Director, Global Greengrants Fund
