Cultural Tourism In Southern Africa from the Author: Haretsebe Manwa. This volume provides an accessible overview of cultural tourism in southern Africa. It examines the utilisation of culture in southern African tourism and the related impacts, possibilities and challenges from deep and wide-ranging perspectives. The chapters use case studies to showcase some of the cultural tourism which occurs in the region and link to concepts such as authenticity, commodification, the tourist gaze and ‘Otherness’, heritage, sustainability and sustainable livelihoods. The authors scrutinise both positive and negative impacts of cultural tourism throughout the book and explore issues including the definition of community, ethical considerations, empowerment, gender, participation and inequality. The book will be a useful resource for students and researchers of tourism, geography, anthropology and cultural studies.

Culture And Community from the Author: Bob Wishitemi. "Cultures and communities in Africa both feed and fight the European tourism image of Africa. 'The European tourist gaze' of Africa is primarily that of a pristine, pure, 'uncivilised', 'wild', 'close to nature' continent with all pictorial associations and representations that come with these words, like huts, water buckets on women's heads, far and free horizons, lions and non-urban. This is the image that sells and lures (Western) tourists to Africa. In this book scientists from Europe and Africa join hands in presenting and critically analysing cases from eastern and southern Africa that show the cultural complexities and social intricacies that lie behind the touristic representations of Africa and Africans"--Cover.
