The British on Holiday is a valuable addition to the tourism research literature and it deserves a wide audience amongst tourism researchers, advanced tourism students and destination managers.The British on Holiday is perhaps one of a few research books which would be good to read on the beach. But it is more than that, and I urge all my colleagues to dip into it.
Hazel Andrews is Senior Lecturer in Tourism, Culture and Society in the Centre for Tourism, Events and Food Studies at Liverpool John Moores University. With a particular focus on practices of embodiment, consumption, habitus and place, her research and publications examine social and symbolic constructions of national, regional and gendered identities in the context of British tourists to Mallorca. Her current research involves the application of theories of existential anthropology to understandings of touristsâ?? experiences and an examination of discourses of nationalism in tourism imagery. Hazel is a co-founder and an editor of the Journal of Tourism Consumption and Practice.
