Making a World of Difference

Essays on Tourism, Culture and Development in Newfoundland

James Overton (Author) 

Tourism is a major cultural and economic force in the world. Many people in Newfoundland are embracing tourism as a possible way out of the province's economic difficulties. How is the "world of difference," as Newfoundland is described in a far-reaching tourism promotion campaign, affected by the policies and programmes designed to exploit this trend? Overton examines specific tourism related initiatives within Newfoundland and Labrador as starting points for a broad discussion of culture and development.
