Despite being viewed as a dangerous region to visit, leisure travel across the Middle East has thrived even in the post-9/11 era. In Beaches, Ruins, Resorts, Waleed Hazbun investigates this overlooked industry to show how tourism is shaping the economic development and international relations of the region in dramatic ways. Hazbun tells the new and surprising story of how the draw of glittering beaches, luxury hotels and resorts, and sightseeing at ancient ruins impact the Arab world-promoting both economic globalization and political authoritarianism.
