Narcís Bassols’ ‘Recommended Read’:

Privileged Mobilities: Tourism as World Ordering

Editors: Mekonnen Tesfahuney and Katarina Schough.

Privileged Mobilities contributes to a growing school of critical studies of tourism. Mobility is about power and space. In this anthology, a series of questions are raised regarding privileged mobiles – who travels, where and whence, and why – not least from the standpoint of class, gender, ethnicity and citizenship.

“This volume is a collective effort by Swedish researchers in the tradition of critical studies in tourism. The authors remind us that tourism can be a source of inequalities, exploitation and continued colonialism. The chapters address topics as varied as tourism in Africa and tourism and gender in order to prove how tourism has pervaded most (if not all) life compartments of today’s individual. Through this mobile individual, domination of the poorer countries has continued in many ways. Firmly grounded in sociological and anthropological traditions, particularly those of tourism, and showing the problems posed by the current understanding of tourism, the book is a clear call to those involved in the industry and the general public to build more equal and socially sustainable tourism.”
