Like some others who have come to appreciate the importance of tourism for
understanding the co-construction of cultural identities, histories, and nations, I
would say that tourism found me as much as I found tourism as a research
subject. As I describe in the Introduction, I had already spent time and carried out
research in all four nations before I came to view tourism as a particularly useful
prism for considering questions that emerge in places marked in recent times by
conflict or ...

histories that are available to nationalists in their conceptualisation of the nation
and why exactly these pasts, rather than other pasts, assume paramount
importance in the discourse of the nation. In other words, the first part of the book
tackles the role played by national histories and national historiographies in the
formation of nations in the modern period. The second part, on the other hand,
assesses how these national histories are represented in the present. Strong
emphasis is ...

HISTORIES. OF. NATIONS. Andrew. Hadfield. 'As in the Renaissance,
knowledge [today] is a site of struggle between national and international forces.'
Andrew Hadfield's essay is concerned with the extent to which theorists of
postmodernism and globalization who have argued that national boundaries are
becoming increasingly obsolescent under the pressure of the influence of
computerized 'networks' of knowledge and data-transmission are, in effect,
replicating the dichotomies ...

elevated other nations into positions of greater importance in world affairs and, so
, we have chosen to include them in this series as well. The importance of a
series such as this cannot be underestimated. As a superpower whose influence
is felt all over the world, the United States can claim a “special" relationship with
almost every other nation. Yet many Americans know very little about the
histories of nations with which the United States relates. How did they get to be
the way they ...

European nations, along with quantitative analyses of international patterns of
economic development in relation to human rights. In tracing the histories of
nations—for example, ...

And if revolutions, immigration, and indigenous demographic collapse turned the
new world settler colonies into nations, aboriginal or first-nation claims to land
rights and cultural autonomy will not go away. Does something unite these
histories? Is there anything to be gained from examining Australia alongside
Israel, or Northern Ireland against Zimbabwe? This book was born of the
willingness of a group of scholars working in different fields to reach across
specialization to try to ...

Patriotic histories of nations have the same distorted and purpose-driven quality
as religions, a fact that becomes obvious as soon as we consider the histories of
nations other than our own. Intellectual movements such as feminism and
postmodernism are often shamelessly open about yoking acceptable truths to
perceived consequences. That's what it means to be politically correct. Scientific
theories are not immune. Many scientific theories of the past become weirdly
implausible ...
