Review quote

The case studies are a particularly important addition to the literature as they highlight how tourism development has simultaneously relieved existing poverty in northeastern Argentina while generating new challenges. The book is a careful and insightful analysis of these complex issues with important implications for other regions facing similar challenges. -- Terence Roehrig, United States Naval War College Tourism in Northeastern Argentina makes an important contribution to scholarship on the effects of tourism in a world increasingly shaped by the forces of globalization.
