Critical in style, From Heritage to Terrorism: Regulating Tourism in an Age of Uncertainty examines the law and its role in shaping and defining tourism and the tourist experience. Using a broad range of legal documents and other materials from a variety of disciplines, it surveys how the underlying values of tourism often conflict with a concern for human rights, cultural heritage and sustainable environments. Departing from the view that within this context the law is simply relegated to dealing the ‘hard edges’ of the tourist industry and tourist behaviour, the authors explore: the ways that the law shapes the nature of tourism and how it can do this the need for a more focused role for law in tourism the law’s current and potential role in dealing with the various tensions for tourism in the panic created by the spread of global terrorism. Addressing a range of fundamental issues underlying global conflict and tourism, this thoroughly up-to-date and topical book is an essential read for all those interested in tourism and law.

Tourism and Politics aims to disseminate ideas on the critical discourse of tourism and tourists as they relate to politics, through a series of case studies from around the world written by specialists with an emphasis on linking theory to practice. That tourism is a profoundly important economic sector for most countries and regions of the world is widely accepted, even if some of the detail remains controversial. However, as tourism matures as a subject, the theories underpinning it necessarily need to be more sophisticated; tourism cannot be simply 'read' as a business proposition with a series of impacts. Wider questions of politics, power and identity need to be articulated, investigated and answered. While the making and consuming of tourism takes place within complex political milieux with multiple stakeholders competing for benefit, the implications are not fully understood. Literature on tourism and politics is surprisingly limited. This book will make a substantial contribution to the theoretical framework of tourism. *Examines the intersection between tourism, tourists, and politics *Uses international case studies to link theory to practice *Adopts a critical perspective and contributes to the theoretical framework of tourism

An der Ostküste Rügens, zwischen Saßnitz und Binz, sollte auf Befehl Adolf Hitlers ein gigantisches Seebad der NS-Organisation »Kraft durch Freude« entstehen. Geplant für 20 000 Menschen, entwickelte sich dieses Gelände schnell zur größten Baustelle des Reiches. Der Rohbau war bis 1939 errichtet, doch zur Vollendung kam es nicht mehr. Nach Kriegsende nutzte die DDR-Volksarmee das Gelände für sich, es wurde militärisches Sperrgebiet. Seit der »Wende« erstmals der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich, kamen mit den staunenden Urlaubern auch die Immobilienspekulanten. Das große Streiten begann. Jürgen Rostock (Text) und Franz Zadnicek (Bilder) rekonstruieren die Geschichte dieses beinahe vergessenen Großprojektes der NS-Zeit.

<B>Diese Arbeit wurde mit dem <I>Wissenschaftspreis der ITB ausgezeichnet.<BR> Fur den Tourismusbereich hat das Krisenmanagement inzwischen fundamentale Bedeutung. Kaum eine Organisation kann es sich noch leisten, sich einer intensiven und fruhzeitigen Auseinandersetzung mit Krisen zu entziehen. <BR> Mit dieser Arbeit werden zum ersten Mal die zugrunde liegenden Zusammenhange in ihrer Breite dargestellt und die Wirkungsprozesse negativer Ereignisse unter Anwendung der Systemtheorie umfassend analysiert. Konsequenzen, die sich daraus fur die verschiedenen Wettbewerbsstrategien ergeben, werden genauso untersucht, wie den Notwendigkeiten und Moglichkeiten des praventiven Krisenmanagements nachgegangen wird. Weitere Schwerpunkte der Arbeit liegen bei der Darstellung von Gestaltungsmoglichkeiten der Fruhaufklarung, den Strategien zur Krisenhandhabung und der umfassenden Beurteilung der Einsatzmoglichkeiten des Marketinginstrumentariums. Das Ergebnis ist ein umfassender marketingorientierter Ansatz des Krisenmanagements fur den Tourismusbereich, welcher nicht nur helfen soll, die Vorgange besser zu begreifen, sondern zukunftig auch die richtigen Vorsorgemassnahmen zu treffen."
