Ecotourism is a unique facet of globalization, promising the possibility of reconciling the juggernaut of development with ecological/cultural conservation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An outstanding contribution to the study of ecotourism that goes beyond utopian promises and dystopic realities to reveal what is at stake locally and transnationally." - Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, author of Destination Culture: Tourism, Museums, and Heritage

"Veronica Davidov examines the complex interface between ecotourism and globalization through stunning ethnography that weaves together the analysis of the creation, maintenance, and understanding of indigenous life-ways in Ecuador. Along the way she examines ideas about cultural production and anthropological representation, making this book a must read for anyone interested in the anthropology of indigenous communities." - Paige West, Tow Professor of Anthropology, Barnard College, USA and Columbia University, USA

"Davidov's ethnography in motion engages ecotourism as a critical circuit of human encounter and cultural reproduction. This book provides a wonderful glimpse into the messy vitality of cultural reproduction dedicated to transforming an unhealthy present into a healthy future." - Jim Igoe, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Virginia, USA

"Ecotourism and Cultural Production is a major milestone in environmental anthropology, (eco)tourism studies, and cultural geography. Davidov has written an ethnographically sensitive and theoretically rich book that fluently weaves together debates on neoliberal conservation, social movements, and resource extraction. An insightful and compelling read." - Bram Buscher, Associate Professor of Environment and Sustainable Development, International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University, The Netherlands
