内容简介

A timely and uniquely historical look at how war turns soldiers, and all of us, into tourists Holidays in the Danger Zone exposes the mundane and everyday interactions between two seemingly opposed worlds: warfare and tourism. Debbie Lisle shows how a tourist sensibility shapes the behavior of soldiers in war--especially the experiences of Western military forces in "exotic" settings. This includes not only R&R but also how battlefields become landscapes of leisure and tourism. She further explores how a military sensibility shapes the development of tourism in the postwar context, from "Dark Tourism" (engaging with displays of conflict and atrocity) to exhibitions of conflict in museums and at memorial sites, as well as advertising, film, journals, guidebooks, blogs, and photography. Focused on how war and tourism reinforce prevailing modes of domination, Holidays in the Danger Zone critically examines the long historical arc of the war-tourism nexus - from nineteenth-century imperialism to World War I and World War II, from the Cold War to globalization and the War on Terror. Debbie Lisle is a reader in international relations in the School of Politics, International Studies, and Philosophy at Queen’s University Belfast. Her books include The Global Politics of Contemporary Travel Writing.
