Summary "How is ethnography practiced in the context of tourism? As a multi- and interdisciplinary area of academic enquiry, the use of ethnography to study tourism is found in an increasingly diverse number of settings. This book is a collection of essays that discuss the practice of ethnography in tourism settings. Reflecting on their experiences, each author presents an individual insight into the complexities of ethnographic practice in destinations from around the globe, including Amsterdam, Angola, Bali, Greece, India, Namibia, Portugal, Spain and the UK. The collection explores a range of themes including obtaining institutional ethical approval, the ethics of fieldwork in-situ, the use of oral histories, the role of memory, empowerment and disempowerment in field relations, gender issues negotiating entrance to the field, the use of oral histories, the use of collaborative fieldwork in teaching, team ethnographies, the use of oral histories, and reflections on writing-up. This is the first book to bring together several tourism scholars using ethnography as their research method. It gives insight into the experience of this unique technique and will be a useful guide for those new to the field, as well as the more seasoned ethnographer who may recognise similar experiences to their own"--
