Summary This book examines the many relationships between tourism and geopolitics, with a focus on experiences drawn from Central and Eastern Europe. The main sections of the book pursue the overlapping and interrelated themes of: (1) reconfiguring conceptions and reality, where tourism is set within evaluations of traditional geopolitical issues; (2) tourism and transnationalism, theorizing and evaluating the (extra)territorial power exerted by tourism- and leisure-related transnational corporations; (3) borderlands, notably examining the transformation of border areas and the tensions between dynamic, high-level (geo)political relations and local tourism-related cross-border quotidian activities; (4) identity and image, exploring tourism's post-communist and post-conflict contributions to changing local and national self-perceptions and to overcoming the tensions of contested heritage; and (5) mobilities, theorising and exemplifying the tourism-related processes of human movement and their interactions. The book has 26 chapters and a subject index
