*Envisioning Eden: **Mobilizing Imaginaries in Tourism and Beyond*
Noel B. Salazar
Berghahn Books, November 2010
http://www.berghahnbooks.com/title.php?rowtag=SalazarEnvisioning
(Vol. 31, /New Directions in Anthropology/)

As tourism service standards become more homogeneous, travel 
destinations worldwide are conforming yet still trying to maintain, or 
even increase, their distinctiveness. Based on more than two years of 
fieldwork in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Arusha, Tanzania, this book 
offers an in-depth investigation of the local-to-global dynamics of 
contemporary tourism. Each destination offers examples that illustrate 
how tour guide narratives and practices are informed by widely 
circulating imaginaries of the past as well as personal fantasies of the 
future. The author reveals how local guides in Yogyakarta and Arusha 
insure the continued reproduction and localization of tourist fantasies, 
but they also use the privileged contact with foreigners to foment their 
own imaginations of “paradise on earth.” The book focuses on the human 
mechanics of globalization, cosmopolitan mobility, and the role of the 
imaginary in giving people’s lives meaning, demonstrating essential ways 
in which ethnographies of tourism and travel contribute to ongoing 
theoretical and methodological debates about the local–global nexus.

/"Noel Salazar's contribution to understanding globalization and 
localization processes is informed and persuasive, using tourism-the 
phenomenon which has turned our world into a global village-to 
illuminate, par excellence, the resulting intersects, overlaps, and 
especially clashes now dominating our shared history."/
*Jafar Jafari*, Founding Editor, */Annals of Tourism Research/***

/"I am very impressed with this book. It is the best ethnography of tour 
guide training and performance to date. Indeed its probing analyses and 
its many comments make a great contribution to our understanding of 
contemporary international and intercultural tourism. It is very well 
written and superbly referenced."/
*Nelson Graburn*, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley

/"This is a lively and enjoyable book based on rigorous research which 
highlights the power and persuasiveness of international tourism while, 
at the same time, critically, it reminds us that tourism is ultimately 
about people and their stories."/
*Mike Robinson*, Director, Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change

/"This book is the reference for tourism imaginaries academia was 
waiting for. Based on excellent ethnographic work that disentangles 
'glocal' issues, it demonstrates that globalization divides the planet 
as much as bringing it together. Tourism and the encounters it generates 
are pertinently analyzed as central pieces of the new anthropology of 
glocalization."/
*Maria Gravari-Barbas*, Director IREST, UNESCO Chair: 
Culture-Tourism-Development
//
/"...a clear, well-organized interesting piece of original research on 
two exceptionally interesting and productively comparable destinations. 
It is well placed within the tourism studies literature."/
*Sally Ann Ness*, Professor, University of California, Riverside
