In Rethinking the Anthropology of Love and Tourism, Sagar Singh draws on anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, religious studies, literature, and the study of mysticism, among other disciplines, to arrive at an understanding of love that is free from theoretical biases. Utilizing data from South Asia, India, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Europe, Singh newly defines tourism, tourism anthropology, tourism studies, and ecotourism. This book is an indispensable guide to all involved and interested in tourism.
