An intriguing exploration of the role and significance of the body in the world of a Pacific Islands People, the Lelet of New Ireland (Papua New Guinea). In vivid ethnographic detail, the monograph captures the fluidity and complexity of Lelet conceptions of corporeality and their significance to identity as they encounter the influences of modernity, in the form of colonialism, Christianity and cash-cropping. The author examines the importance of the body to constructions of identity and difference, and its role in the constitution of place and space. The book provides a richly detailed ethnographic study of magical belief and the body whilst paying particular attention to the polyvalent meanings of bodily images and metaphors as they are used in numerous contexts of magic.

'A substantial contribution to an established and rapidly developing interdisciplinary literature on tourism as a key topic in the study of contemporary cultures... among the most intensive, original and theoretically sophisticated critical studies of contemporary tourism' - George Marcus, Professor of Anthropology, Rice University 'Excellent... in some places exciting, in others brilliant. I can pay Hutnyk no greater compliment than to say that his story of Calcutta should survive as a living imagery.' - Ashis Nandy, Center for the Study of Developing Societies, New Delhi

Tackling the dearth of politically-engaged work on travel and tourism, this book provides a counter-narrative of travel-worlds shaped by divergent legacies: of colonialism, crusades, migration, diaspora, displacement, tourism, ethnography, political insurgency and transnationalization. The issues addressed include: north-south traffic in hip hop, Kung-Fu and sex tourism; missionaries in India, academics in the west; Saint George as an Arab soldier in The Crusades; the Indian-Pakistan border, displacement and defiance; mobile resistance to nation-state hegemonies in Bangladesh; the international market value of dead tourists; pop personalities, MTV and souvenir culture; diasporized Mirpuri youth on travel; touring black women, pleasure islands; and ethnographers abroad. Such diverse journeys are plotted using counter-hegemonic perspectives on the politics and practice of travel.
