Reviews

The original Tourist Gaze was a classic, marking out a new land to study and appreciate. This new edition extends into fresh areas with the same passion and insight of the object. Even more essential reading!
Nigel Thrift
Vice-Chancellor, Warwick University The first edition of Tourist Gaze was a landmark in the theoretical development of tourism studies, and it inspired waves of research and often fierce debates that have reverberated over the following two decades. This new edition of the book is not only thoroughly revised but has also been given renewed cutting edge, particularly by the addition of chapters on risk and on digital photography. At the same time, our understanding of the tourist gaze has been reframed and broadened by the infusion of ideas about mobility and embodiment, making this book an essential read for every tourism scholar
Allan Williams
Professor of Tourism Management, University of Surrey Don't leave home without the 3rd edition! With new chapters and rigorous restructuring, this classic guide to critical tourism studies becomes even more useful to scholars and students across the social sciences and humanities. The Tourist Gaze 3.0 takes us on a detailed tour of the major concepts and approaches to one of the world's largest culture industries. With fresh insights and new materials, this collaboratively written revision will immediately become required reading for those who pay attention to the world of travel, mobility, and visual culture
Caren Kaplan
Professor of Cultural Studies, Science and Technology, UC Davis A great classic remade to capture the lives of tourists in the 21st century. For two decades The Tourist Gaze has been one of the most influential books in tourist research. This new and thoroughly reworked version meets the challenges of a changing world of tourism and engages the lively contemporary debates in the field
Orvar Loefgren
Professor of European Ethnology, University of Lund This thoroughly updated edition of John Urry's seminal contribution to tourist studies will engage a whole new generation of scholars. The extensive addition of new material absorbs and expands upon new insights from within this shifting field of study to develop an enhanced understanding of the tourist gaze. The fresh input of Jonas Larsen adds a renewed vibrancy to the debates which are, as ever, communicated in a brisk, inclusive and lucid fashion, and will ensure that The Tourist Gaze book retains its relevance for students and academics across the world
Tim Edensor
Reader in Cultural Geography, Manchester Metropolitan University The Tourist Gaze has been the most influential book on tourism in the last twenty years. This extensively revised edition serves to remind us both why the original was so important and engages with the massive developments in the literature it helped to spawn. The impressive updating in response to theoretical debates is matched only by the response to the profound shifts in tourism itself, its markets, technologies and organisation, which indicates how much value still lies in the arguments made
Mike Crang
Reader in Geography, Durham University Few scholarly books manage to be deeply serious and highly entertaining, but The Tourist Gaze has been absorbing its readers for more than two decades. This newly expanded third edition of Urry's classic is a landmark in its own right; deepening and broadening its approach to the study of tourism in the era of the internet, global warming and peak oil. This book's rich blend of cultural history, political economy and social enquiry takes us to the heart of some of the most urgent issues of our time
Meaghan Morris
Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies, University of Sydney The book covers a wide range of tourist-gaze interwoven topics such as theories; mass tourism; economies; working under the gaze; changing tourist cultures; places, buildings and design; vision and photography; performances; risks and futures which function as distinctive chapters within the book, along with an extremely generous bibliography and an index list...With an analytical discourse and the power of exemplification, the tacking of up-to-date emerging trends in tourist behavior and the authors' genuine ability to read it, the book invites to a critical observation and meditation on today's "society of spectacle" towards which tourism is heading to, meanwhile bringing a great contribution to tourism research and theoretical development
