Spencer and Tarlow identify a range of challenges effecting this area and trace the social and economic fallout for contemporary tourism business practices, while also reflecting on how the Caribbean can work to overcome these issues. The authors establish a contextual framework through a history of tourism security and discussion of the theories of in this area from Marxism to Capitalism and Functionalism to Symbolic interaction. Chapters examine a wide range of other issues, including the renaissance of tourism security, Jamaica's national tourism security audit, and the role of the resilience center in worldwide tourism, as well the development of tourism police and the rise of cyber security for tourism. The study presents an illuminating new perspective for Tourism and Security Studies scholars interested in the Caribbean context and beyond.PPN: PPN: 1773263323Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-55-BME | ZDB-1-BMEN | ZDB-1-EPB
