Tourism—one of the world's largest industries—has long been appreciated for its economic benefits, but in this volume tourism receives a unique systematic scrutiny as a medium for cultural exchange. Modern developments in technology and industry, together with masterful advertising, have created temporarily leisured people with the desire and the means to travel. They often in turn effect profound cultural change in the places they visit, and the contributors to this work all attend to the impact these "guests" have on their "hosts." In contrast to the dramatic economic transformations, the social repercussions of tourism are subtle and often recognized only by the indigenous peoples themselves and by the anthropologists who have studied them before and after the introduction of tourism. The case studies in Hosts and Guests examine the five types of tourism—historical, cultural, ethnic, environmental, and recreational—and their impact on diverse societies over a broad geographical range

This textbook addresses the chemical and physicochemical principles of supramolecular host-guest chemistry in solution. It covers the thermodynamics and dynamics of inclusion and highlights several types of organic hosts. Various applications of host-guest chemistry in analytical and environmental chemistry as well as pharmaceutical and chemical industry demonstrate the versatile usability of molecular cages.

The scientific and practical interest in coronands (crown ethers), cryptands, podands as complexing agents for cations as well as for anions and neutral low molecular species is undeniable 1,2). The chemistry of crown compounds is steadily increasing. About 250 original papers dealing with crown chemistry appeared only in 1980. New molecules· with crown ether properties are constantly synthesized and new applications discov,?red. Owing to lack of space, only a small number of the original publications is men tioned here. Thus, in the literature compilation only some, but relevant works are selected for each chapter. Whenever possible, reference is made to reviews or review-like articles alone by means of which origin,al works can be consulted. The reviews given under ref. 1) are considered to be the most relevant. The formulae presented in the figures should be understood as representative structures outlining a specific field. 2 Classification of Oligo-/Multidentate Neutral Ligands and of their Complexes Today, a distinction is made between the classical ring oligoethers (crown ethers) and monocyclic coronands, oligocyclic spherical cryptands and the acyclic podands with respect to topological aspects 3). This classification and the topology are illustrated in Fig. 1, each figure representing the minimum number of donor atoms and chain segments characteristic of each class of compounds. Multidentate mono cyclic ligands with any type of donor atoms are called coronands ("crown compounds"), while the term crown ether should be reserved for cyclic oligoethers exclusively containing oxygen as donor atom.

This fascinating study explores the enigmatic portrayals of the Pharisees in Luke and Acts. The characterization of the Pharisees is examined in the context of the social dynamics inherent in the narratives. The fusion of these narratological and social modes of analysis represents not only a fresh approach to the Pharisees in Luke and Acts, but also is a significant methodological advance in gospel study.

* Exceptional overview of the tourism industry worldwide * Case studies of indigenous people’s responses to tourism development * Detailed listing of tourism and ecotourism resources This is a fully revised and comprehensive overview of the history and global development of tourism--one of the largest industries in the world. Despite promising great benefits to hosts and guests alike, tourism often results in some very stark and painful consequences for local host communities and the environment. The second edition provides updated information on global tourism and examines how local communities in different parts of the world, especially indigenous peoples, have responded to the challenges and opportunities of tourism and ecotravel.
