This book is the result of my 20 years’ fieldwork on social and cultural processes in tourism environments. It began with the paper I presented to the 2007 annual conference of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth (“Thinking through Tourism” hosted by the London Metropolitan University in England). It grew further during 2008 through the papers presented in the I Simposio Internacional sobre Interculturalidad en el Mediterráneo organized by the Universitas Miguel Hernández of Elche, Spain; the 8 Tagung der Kommission für Tourismusforschung held at the Institut für Volkskunde/Europäische Ethnologie of the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München, Germany; and the “Intercultural mobilities in tourism contexts: migrants, tourists, new residents, and local population” workshop of the 10th Bi-annual Conference of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA), organized by the Oddelek za etnologijo in kulturno antropologijo of the Universa v Ljubljani, Slovenia. Finally, it was shaped during a three-month research at the Leerstoelgroep Sociaal-ruimtelijke Analyse of the Wageningen University and Research centre in 2009. At every occasion, I had the enormous pleasure of meeting and learning from each and all of the contributors of this volume.
