Sex Tourism In Africa from the Author: Wanjohi Kibicho. Illustrated by in-depth empirical research from Kenya - one of the most popular country destinations in Africa for sex tourism - this book gathers much-needed statistics and data, and then critically examines the features of tourism and the sex trade, contextualizing this in relation to tourism development. It addresses the conditions which generate this 'social problem' and, while not taking a potentially problematic moralistic stance it questions whether this trade is exploitative in nature, particularly in cases of child sex tourism. It then critically evaluates the current policies in place to regulate the sex tourism industry and provides suggestions for future direction.

Tourism In The New South Africa from the Author: Garth Allen. A new socially responsible tourism has recently emerged out of a widening and acute concern for the environment. Know variously as "ecotourism", "new tourism", and "socially responsible tourism", huge claims are made for this new model of tourism development. Here, Allen and Brennan discuss these claims and explore the experience of three tourist areas in South Africa. Under the new political dispensation in South Africa, conservation authorities are now obliged to utilize their natural resources and expertise in local sustainable development, and socially responsible tourism has been identified as an important option by the national government. The South African experience thus provides an important and rare view of how the "new tourism" works in practice.

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.

Tourism And Development In Sub Saharan Africa from the Author: Marina Novelli. Over the past 20 years, the perception of tourism as an effective contributor to socio-economic development in the developing world has propagated, with many viewing tourism as a provider for poverty alleviation and towards other UN Millennium Development Goals. Over the same period, readers have become familiar with the paradoxes, complexities and inequalities of tourism in relation to development, wealth creation, growth, redistribution, governance and ‘hosts-guests’ relationships. This volume further extends this critical debate with a much-needed cohesive publication on Sub-Sahara Africa (SSA). In an era of fluctuating tourist arrivals at global level, the growth of tourism in SSA requires deeper consideration in terms of its inconsistent and questionable implications at local level. Taking as a central theme the debate on whether tourism should be used in development efforts, this book examines the way in which tourism has controversially become the way forward to development in several SSA locations and assesses bottlenecks to sustainable development as well as dilemmas and challenges faced by those SSA destinations seeking to achieve development through tourism. It offers an explicit set of chapters adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, drawing upon tourism studies, human geography, sociology, anthropology, political economy, development and environmental studies, and integrates case studies authored by local African practitioners and academics to produce a book that gave voice to local experts on local realities. Combining an overview of key theories, concepts, contemporary issues and debates as well as practical insights from a wide range of regions in SSA, this book will be a valuable resource for those investigating the role of tourism in development.
