Multiple Dwelling and Tourism: Negotiating Place, Home and Identity
Norman McIntyre, Daniel Williams, Kevin McHugh
CABI, 2006 - House & Home - 368 pages
The movement of people, goods, capital and information is a central aspect of living in the inter-connected, globalised late-modern world. Although this broader view of mobility is recognized, this book focuses mainly on migration or the movement of people. It examines multiple dwelling as a societal response to the major influences of increased mobility and amenity tourism. The book also considers the modern-day meaning of multiple dwelling, how it affects personal identity and the meaning of 'home' and its impacts on host communities and landscapes.
