Review: Christoph Köck (Ed.) (2001). Reisebilder. Produktion und Reproduktion touristischer Wahrnehmung [Travel Pictures. Production and Reproduction of Travel Perceptions]

Klaus Schriewer


This review presents Reisebilder, an omnibus consisting of 17 articles, the result of a conference in cultural anthropology. The main themes are images, stereotypes and symbols that have evolved within tourism. The majority of the texts stem from studies analysing historical and contemporary themes based on secondary sources. The book lacks empiricist investigations that analyse the perception, identity and everyday culture of tourists.
