We all like to take a break, relax on a beach or explore somewhere new. And we assume tourism economically benefits the host too. But this is often not the case - in the global south over 50 percent of a tourist's spending will leave the country in which it is spent. And what about the environmental impact of jetting off to exotic destinations?
In this No-Nonsense Guide, Pamela Nowicka explores the third biggest industry in the world (after oil and narcotics). Taking the reader on a trip through the early days of travel, up to the first package tours and today's mass tourism, she argues that we in the West could help more by travelling less and being more discerning when we do travel. This compelling and fascinating book will show you the hidden impacts of tourism.
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.

New Internationalist is a magazine well worth reading as it respects the intelligence of its readers. It is independent, lively and properly provocative, helping to keep its readers abreast of important developments in parts of our globe that risk marginalisation. Read it!.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like An Aussie campaign on global warming. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about An Aussie campaign on global warming: The symbolic hour of lights-out has grown into the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
