This is a richly detailed and thoroughly interesting analysis of the complex interconnections between tourism, the film industry and filmic images. I found it really worth reading and think it will develop new research in these fascinating areas.-- Prof. John Urry, Lancaster University
This book is an easily accessible examination and analysis of the role of film derived images and the link with tourist perception of place. Subsequently, in a series of global case studies, Dr Beeton examines the impact of films upon tourism demand, local communities and the development of specific tourism products such as and specific re-enactments of filmed fantasy. Personal comment lightens the work to create an interesting tour de force.-- Prof. Chris Ryan, University of Waikato
