Critical in style, From Heritage to Terrorism: Regulating Tourism in an Age of Uncertainty examines the law and its role in shaping and defining tourism and the tourist experience. Using a broad range of legal documents and other materials from a variety of disciplines, it surveys how the underlying values of tourism often conflict with a concern for human rights, cultural heritage and sustainable environments.

  • the ways that the law shapes the nature of tourism how it can do this
  • the need for a more focused role for law in tourism
  • the law’s current and potential role in dealing with the various tensions for tourism in the panic created by the spread of global terrorism.

    Addressing a range of fundamental issues underlying global conflict and tourism, this thoroughly up-to-date and topical book is an essential read for all those interested in tourism and law.
