Description
Product Reviews
The author believes that tourism is one of the great economic engines of the 20th century West. In this book, he demonstrates what an incredible transformative power tourism has had, particularly in the West. As Mike Davis (Author of City of Quartz: Excavating the Future of Los Angeles) states on a cover blurb, 'Once pillaged for its raw materials, the American West is now looted for its landscapes and historical auras. Giant resort and gaming corporations are rapidly transforming the canonical frontier into a neon them park, pockmarked with casinos, prisons, trophy homes, and urban slums. Tourism, as Hal Rothman demonstrates in this brilliant and disturbing book, is the price of the land's very soul.' Rothman's thesis is illustrated by examples of what's happened in cities like Santa Fe, Sun Valley and Steamboat Springs, and Las Vegas. Includes an extensive bibliography and index. 433 pages, hardbound. 2000
