Summary
"A large number of sites associated with war, genocide, assassination and other tragic events have become significant tourist destinations. The authors of this volume call this phenomenon 'dark tourism', and they set out to explore it in detail, looking at possible reasons why tourists visit these attractions - for remembrance, for education, or even for entertainment." "Dark-tourism sites present governments and other authorities with moral and ethical dilemmas. Recent tragic history often confronts the dynamics of commercial development and exploitation. Complex issues are raised surrounding the extent and nature of interpretation, the appropriate political and managerial response and the nature of the experience perceived by visitors, local residents, victims and their relatives."--BOOK JACKET
