Power and culture are inextricably bound up with tourism. The anthropological case studies in this groundbreaking book explore this relationship in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Australia and South East Asia. Two sections deal with tourism and the power struggle for resources; and tourism and culture: presentation, promotion and the manipulation of image. A concluding chapter investigates the relationship between tourism and power.
"Investigating Culture: An Experiential Introduction to Anthropology" proposes an innovative approach to understanding culture as a constructed phenomenon open to investigation of its implicit premises and explicit forms. This exciting book offers a refreshing hands-on alternative to more traditional textbooks by challenging readers to think about culture in new ways and to apply these ideas to their own lives. Investigating Culture teaches students to think like anthropologists by encouraging them to compare their own cultural experiences with that of anthropologists who enter a culture specifically to study it. Approaching the study of culture or cultural anthropology in this way trains students to confront the reflexive nature of anthropology early on and to distance themselves from the inherent flaws of studying the "exotic Other." "Investigating Culture" is divided into nine chapters that focus on the variety of ways that humans orient themselves - in space and time,...
Between the first and seventh centuries AD, Gothic groups moved thousands of miles across the map of Europe, from the fringes of the Baltic to the shores of the Atlantic ocean. In the process, they transformed themselves from an insignificant people on the outskirts of the known world into highly militarized forces, capable of carving out successor states for themselves from the body politic of the Roman Empire.This book draws on all the available literary and archaeological evidence, much of the latter never before discussed in English, to reconstruct the Goths' dramatic history, and to explore the meaning of Gothic identity at different moments and in different contexts.The volume is divided into three parts, corresponding to the three main phases in Gothic history: their early history down to the fourth century, the revolution in Gothic society set in motion by the arrival of the Huns, and the history of the Gothic successor states to the western Roman Empire.
Named one of the top 20 most influential business thinkers of 2008 by The Wall Street Journal, business anthropologist Geert Hofstede has fully updated his classic work on how the place where we grew up shapes the way we think, feel, and act. Since its original publication in 1991, Cultures and Organizations has been helping business leaders understand how people think as members of a group - which dramatically increases managers' effectiveness leading and developing cross-cultural workforces. This groundbreaking work reveals: The unexamined rules behind the thoughts and emotions of people of different cultures; Ways in which cultures differ in the areas of collectivism/individualism, assertiveness/modesty, tolerance for ambiguity, and deferment of gratification; How organizational cultures differ from national cultures, and how they can be managed. New material in this expanded third edition includes the latest data from the author's ongoing...
Would that we were still alive; that we could see you as you really are, talk to you, learn from you, then take you to one of our cinemas (more on those later) and share a laugh together watching Men in Black, or cry together watching E.T., or feel incredibly awkward together watching Independence Day or Aliens ox Species or Cloverfield, or well, we fought you guys a lot in our movies. Alas, we're dead, and that will never happen. But this book is designed to provide you with the next best thing to our actual presence: a comprehensive history of our planet and our species, conveniently written in the universal language - American English.
